Gmail Accounts

I’ve got a few extra Gmail account invites that I don’t need. I figured I could reward my both of my blog readers with something. If you want one (and don’t already have one), leave a comment as to why you should have a Gmail account and I’ll pick the best two tomorrow night and send them invites. The rest of you will have to wait or beg over at gmail swap.

Update: Winners announced over here.

    Hey I would LOVE an invite. This is actually the first time I’ve ever been to your page. Like the layout, but having to sign up for commenting is kind of a chore.

    I just want to see how long it takes me to fill a 1GB mailbox.

    Thank you,

    I could use an invite 🙂 I work with mozilla a lot ( and do a lot of rich internet application (ria) development. I’ve heard people talking about gmail as a ria client. I just can’t wait to have a chance to try it out and make some comparisons with xul based apps.

    How about…
    Because I have a rotten cold.
    My Flyers were eliminated in the NHL playoffs.
    Monday the bill collectors will get back on my phone.

    This could be the only thing saving the weekend from the abyss. Or less of an abyss!

    Why do I deserve a gmail invite? Well, this week is my last ever week at University. My final exams; the culmination of my entire life up until this point to achieve a Master’s degree…

    So how about as a reward, as a ‘well done’ prize; a gmail account? It sounds like a great idea to me…!

    I think I deserve one for my total commitment to Mozilla dating back to before Netscape 6’s release. Looking back it was a painful experience, but still I needed a decent browser on Windows and Linux so the project always had my full support.

    … and just think what it’d be like to be able to have a gigabyte of pr0n in my email!

    I need a big e-mail account because I’m leaving Canada for Peru next week and I desperately need to keep track all the travel and personal information I’ve collected since I’ve started planning. I also want to keep in touch with my friends during that time. I’m sure Yahoo and others will be insuffiscient.

    Pretty please? 😉

    I’m a big family guy and south park fan. Sorry, not a regular poster on your site, but this is the only original thing I could think of to express my desperate need for an invite. Heh, I’ve almost giving up trying lately 🙂

    Take care!

    The reason(s) I need/want a g-mail account…..

    Truthfully, I’ve wanted a G-Mail account for bugzilla. I’m cc’d on a couple hundred bugs and all the bug spam is so hard to to keep track of, therefore I am hoping that the search feature would ease my pain and help me make my bugzilla life much better.

    2) It’s a “feel-cool” factor, I feel left out. I want to be cool. That’s lame, I know.

    3) I’d like to make an extension for mozilla/firefox that could enhance g-mails interface and usefullness. I’m not sure if any API’s are available now for g-mail. Even if not, I’m sure there is something that could be done.

    4) 1Gb of e-mail storage sounds way too awesome.

    5) I too think Superstar USA could be one of the best reality shows in a long time. (I’m sick of them in general)

    Reasons to send me a Gmail. Because being a mom is tough enough!!!! This would add a little extra fun to the day, and I don’t think I’ve ever won anything.

    An insurance man visited me at home to talk about our mortgage insurance. He was throwing a lot of facts and figures at me, and I wanted to follow as best I could, so I told my 6-year-old son to run and get me a pad. He came back and handed me a Kotex right in front of our guest.

    2. HO, HO, HO
    I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas Cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggested I take a closer look. Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror wearing nothing but a camera!

    My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of nuts. As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help. I replied, “No, I’m just looking at your nuts”. My sister started to laugh hysterically, the boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

    4. ~DISCOUNT~
    A lady picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the checker, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for all the store to hear, “PRICE CHECK ON LANE 4, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE.” That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word as “THUMBTACKS.” In a business-like tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom “DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND WITH A HAMMER?”

    A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of the class was squirming around, scratching his crotch and not paying attention. She went back to find out what was going on. He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy. The teacher told him to go down to the principal’s office. He was to phone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did it and returned to his class. Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room. She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his penis hanging out. “I thought I told you to call your mom.” She screamed. “I did,” He said, “And she told me that if I could stick it out till noon, she’d come and pick me up from school.”


    Also. Yahoo is alright but I’m a Google maniac.

    I could give you a bunch of cheezy answers:

    “When I look into a puppy’s eyes, I’ll think of when you gave me a GMail invite”

    “I love your blog” (I do admit to reading when you update via blogupdates)

    or something to that effect.

    But instead, heck, I just want a gmail account to play with, and perhaps use for bugzilla if it’s search/sort feature is really good.

    I am excited as hell to try out Gmail and be able to migrate all of my accounts into one. It would also help me in my job hunting so that I can actually keep all my sent e-mails with my resumes in them. For now, I have to delete them now and then to avoid filling up my Yahoo! account.

    Plus, I can help you learn to drive a stick shift with my Jetta and offer you an invitation to join Orkut.

    Help an out-of-work techie out?

    Give me an invite so I can do absolutely nothing with another email account. Only now, I can do absolutely nothing with TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY TIMES THE STORAGE CAPACITY OF YAHOO.

    gmail is awesome.

    GMail Address

    So I’ve been using GMail to manage some aspects of email – especially the stuff I can auto-file as it arrives. It’s pretty neat. I have a spare invitation to give to someone else, and in a bid to find…
