Not anymore. Almost everyone now has invites, so there are over 2500 listings on ebay, with most not even breaking $1 as the selling price.

Have you guys tried out www.spymac.com?? It's by no means "GMAIL", but it works. If you run it through a program like Outlook or Thunderbird it's perfect. It also seems to be very spam free. A spymac account comes with...

Re: Gmail Accident

I can't believe that 'yanwang' and 'yan.wang' were both taken. It'd seem like 'nickelser' or 'ashleyweed' would be more common.

Re: Gmail Accident

Who here has a .5tb email account? *raises hand* Oh man, I love running my own server My favorite thing is that the server doesn't even need 100% uptime. Most MX servers will try to resend mail for a week or so if it can't get through.

I climbed on the orkut boat pretty early on.. I don't think I'll even bother with gmail. (Although it would have been nice to have had a larger ISP mailbox *looks at the $32 overdraft charge for forgetting to delete mail of the server*) It would take years upon years for me to get even 500mb of email. Remove spam from that and I'd never reach the limit. Neat idea for people who'd actually use it, though. (Email for me is pretty much non-existant outside of spam, 3 email lists, website subscriptions, ebay.. all my communication is done via IRC, AIM or my blog. i<3blogs)
