    New email address for me... darkhand at gmail dot com. :) Dunno why I don't just make a hyperlink for the address, as I shouldn't be scared of spam anymore, but I don't want to sully the new account just yet. :)

    I don't have any invites yet, and there are like 8 people in front of you who have dibs already. :)


    Kinda spoiling things here, but you shouldn't have much trouble getting one either... I kinda cheated to get mine. :D :ph34r: You can get one rather easily, too. :)

    Or we can all spend 99 cents and get our accounts much faster than waiting for invites. :)

    I burst out laughing at work over this part. :D

    The storage space thing is a major part of the craze... Imagine never having to clean out your mailbox... Keep every email you've recieved, ever. For example, I have to delete all my ebay transaction emails every few weeks. With GMail, I can keep them all, and find the information I want in them easily. Which leads me to the next point:

    You can easily search through your email with google's search tools. One of my favorite features is that you can display your emails as running conversations... No more sorting through endless quotes and CCs to keep up with the chat; Google will sort it all out for you and turn it into one running conversation.

    Then yeah, there's the geek-status thing. B)

    I like many other people had no idea there was such a huge, practically free market for GMail invites on ebay untill yesterday when it was mentioned on slashdot... They've probably got a ton of invites going through right now. :)
