No you don't I DO!!!
I got an invite tonight for Gmail.
I can finally switch from my crappy Hotmail account.
So, feel free to send me a E-mail to my G-Mail!!!
I gotta figure out how the thing works, and if it's worth it.
Can you guess what it is???
Yep, you got it: email@example.com
I'm curious to hear what you have to say about it. I got an invite last week, but really don't need another email address. I've got a grand total of 19 email addresses at the moment, and enough spam to keep me rolling.. :)
But I'd like to hear from someone who is using it what the overall advantages are.
from what I read in the trades, google mail will be a resounding success, right up to the point when someone files a suit for them scanning every email for content, so that they can direct "interest" info to the user.... as for me, "there is no free email (lunch)", there's only free spam (not lunch) :)
I just signed up for the Rockler contest on the banner that runs here.
They send the confirmation.
Well, since "woodworking" was in the body of the e-mail, there were 3 ads on the side for stores.
The only problem, is that none of them were Rockler.
One was Woodcraft, though. :7

I have a bunch of e-mails through earthlink, but I can't look at them everywhere I go without setting up webmail on their site. I like having a e-mail account I can use when I have to sign up for things. I don't have to worry about my regular e-mail filling up with junkmail, I use the web based one!
I got another invite and got a gmail for the wife. She does not know where she will be from day to day (accountant), so it's nice that she can go somewhere and use the net to look at e-mail instead of filling up her earthlink box with junk and only being able to look at it at home.
I think that's the advantage.
I use a hotmail account as I get on the net regularly from three different accounts and can easily check my mail anytime I'm on the net without going through the POP3 setup stuff.
I had POP3 e-mail through a service provider for a while when I was on dialup and I had to download all of the mail in order to dump the junk. Couldn't just download headers and delete em on the server which sucked.
Just yesterday, we used clamps after glue simply to take the bow out of the wood we were using, and it straightened everything out for us. Usually though, any time you lay up a project the clamps are...
