The kindness of strangers...

Well, he's not really a stranger -- but as I've never really "met" turg in person, he is a stranger of a sort.

In any case, I have been remiss in not thanking him for the gmail invite. So thank you, turg, for your generosity. I feel *so* l337 to be among the first of the gmail crowd (well, as first as I care to be, anyway).Well, he's not really a stranger -- but as I've never really "met" turg in person, he is a stranger of a sort.

I have changed my publicly listed address to the gmail account, and will probably only check Yahoo rarely. As they say down at the phone company (ha! Phones. How quaint!): Please make a note of it.

I also got an invite (1)

and signed up, but can't seem to log on from here. I've noticed that problem with about 6-7 websites. I don't know why, but it sure is annoying.

Damn, I was going to grovel for an invite from you. But if you can't give one out I can grovel anyway. Practice for the person who does send me an invite dontcha know.

Still need a gmail invite? IM me (1)

GMail invite sent to your hotmail address. Apparently hotmail's spam filters have been blocking them so let me know if you don't get it -- it appears in my sent mail so I can IM or e-mail you the URL.

i'll add my thanks to turg (1)

i got an invite from some girl in california randomly, but since i can't invite yet, he donated one to my boss (scoring me major brownie points)

generosity? (1)

turg (19864) | more than 10 years ago | (#9491861)

I gave you something that I got for free and that I have more of than I have any use for.

What's the deal with the gmail invites?
I know, I could probably find it in a few seconds doing a quick search but then I couldn't display my ignorance.

Well, gmail accounts are available by invitation only, apparently. A while back, there were people paying actual money for them. Go figure.

Well, now everyone who's gotten an account has a passle of invitations to hand out -- it's like a virus (even more insidious than the adorable bunny one... or whatever it is in your sig). ;-)

It's just the latest "cool" thing to have -- a gmail account. That's all I can figure out.
