Anybody want a Gmail invite?
« Reply #15 on: June 23, 2004, 01:28:27 pm »

The whole reason I even bothered creating cortjstr.com was so the SO and I could have actual reliable e-mail addresses instead of dealing with small limits, spam, and constant outages at hotmail and yahoo and now Google goes and offers more storage for free than I get for my entire website.

But still I've never like web interfaces. Even for my Hotmail account I use Outlook or OE. I only use Squirrel for my cortjstr account if I have to.

Even though I own eleven different domain names, I suddenly have the urge to acquire a Gmail account.

Austin, if you have any invites left over that no one wants, hook me up.


Who the hell is Austin?

...I mean, the gig's got to be nice and all, but if you're hanging onto a gig's worth of e-mails - what? You actually think one day you're really and truly going to go back through them all? Or wait - let me guess - your fuck*ng biographers?


As your future biographer, I order you to retain all e-mails and 7-11 reciepts for my future reference.

August, I have seen photos of you, and you look very much like a friend whose name is Austin.

And then my brain gets fried between August and Austin and...

I am an idiot.  

Thank you for the invite nonetheless.  I shall try to use it for good rather than evil.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Also, I have sent all my invites now.  Anybody else who wants one should bug one of the people who got one from me.

and, of course, having another email address would be handy since v-adore got me ADDICTED to kingdomofloathing, which is a WORSE form of CRACK than magic the gathering. grrrr.

I, too, have done the "oh my GOD where can I get another E-MAIL ADDRESS I need to have a NEW ALT RIGHT NOW" thing. You know it's bad when you actually use the pretentious @livejournal.com e-mail alias you get with a paid account just because you need a Sauceror alt that badly.

Anyway, my name is uncommon enough that generally I don't feel the need to insta-sign-up for mailing services just to get it. On the other hand... man, all the cool kids are doin' it. Now I sorta want in.

Wait, so now is it like everyone with a new gmail account has our own invitations? My god, this is just like herpes! Yeah, if that's the case, anyone who wants one can give me a message.

Not just yet.  I assume we'll get our own invites at some point, but I'm not sure how long you have to have had the account before they invite you.

August said a couple of days.

And supposedly when one of your invites signs up they e-mail them and let them know what your e-mail address is, so that, I suppose, they can sign you up for SO MUCH SPAM.

This is why I always use CortJstr. So far I've been able to use it everywhere I've signed up except for Yahoo. Screw you other CortJstr. FUCK You!

It's back up now.  I had sent them e-mail and they replied that they were upgrading a network switch.  

Whatever.
