I dunno if anyone has an invite still left over, and it feels weird to join the grovelling masses...but...

Would anyone like to give a poor kid a pass into email Valhalla?

I'd be quite happy to, but you didn't try PMing me, and you've got PMing disabled, making it somewhat difficult to find out your email address to send an invite to. Perhaps you'd like to rectify one or more of the aforementioned problems [Wink]

Edit: Or just send a request for an invite to my email address, which has pelennor before the gmail.com, as mentioned before

I have resisted this long as I thought mine was adiquate, but now people keep wanting to E-mail me large photos. So, if any one out there has an invite and is feeling generous, please think of me [hearts] [weep]

Everything but the first one, officially from Gmail, violates the Gmail TOS which you agreed to when you signed up. It specifically states that screen-scrapers are a violation of the TOS. I respect Google, and appreciate the 1 GB of e-mai they've given me, and don't abuse it.

I've still got five invites left, for people with reading comprehension skills (ie send PM with email address, or send email to pelennor with the gmail domain at the end).

I almost thought I had a gmail invite today but when I opened the emial it was only spam. And here I was all excited that someone remembered me, figures it would be something from a porn site. I can't believe someone would use Gmail Invite as their tag line. It was bad enough when they used to pretend they were responding to my personal ads but to toy with my emotions by pretending to send me a gmail invitaion, that crosses the line. I suppose I'll just stick to good ol' yahoo mail and keep the filters on high.

They've already given you invites to send out? They're really ramping up now...

I got my first six invites yesterday (already gave one to my best friend... hope I didn't waste it, but that's another story) after only having my account for two days (and sending one and receiving one e-mail).

If you want an invite, I need to know your first and last names and a current e-mail address.

By the bye, how do you add addresses to your address book in Gmail, assuming it has an address book? For the life of me I can't find a link for it. Of course, I could just be having problems reading the page after too much time using Yahoo. Kinda like when I'm playing piano in two clefs and switch to viola in a third...


[edit] Oh, ha! It's the little link by my name in the right-hand corner that says "Contacts." Go figure. [Razz]

ok ok, I'm full up now, no more invites needed on my end [Big Grin] . Oddly though, all the names I tried were available so I was able to secure the accounts I really wanted instead of settling for some strange variant. Thanks to those who sent them. I'm a 3 account Gmailer now (I had no accounts before yesterday)and I have a feeling I'll be needing to unload invites of my own. I think the only thing worse than not knowing people to beg invites from is not knowing anyone to send them to. One account pretty much takes care of computer aware friends and family, not sure what to do with the rest. I do enjoy the problem of having too much as opposed to none at all though [Happytears]

I keep my hotmail account active. I've had since the non-microsoft hotmail days.
