5 more gmail invites

I have 5 more gmail invites left. I'm giving them away for free. Post your comment. I'll wait for a week before selecting the 5 lucky ones. Friends will be served first.
I know I'm asking for another comment flamebait. Bring it on.

*Shrug* Actually, I don't particularly *want* a gmail account - I'm having enough trouble keeping track of e-mail as it is :) And probably I won't actually have the time to dig into it - same reason Vasil Kolev's still mad at me for ignoring his Orkut invitation... But still, it might be fun to try :)

last couple of days i'm giving away invites all around, even was threaten with 'kick & ban' in irc for inviteing :-) acctually, two issues: 1) i'm kind of uncomfortable with gmail -- i guess i like procmail too much, and 2) there are some.. interesting.. moments in the agreements you have to accept to use the service. so, i'm using my account to give invites to other people (mostly already users of some kind of webmail)

btw, read somewhere yahoo marks gmail invites as 'junk mail' or whatever do they call it, and hotmail blocks them. fear is in the eye of the beholder.

on the other hand, wouldn't it be better if we have two big independable search engines ? think about how do you find ANY kind of information nowadays.. gee, 'googleing' is a verb.

the question these days to me is: do fsf and rms could have bigger impact on society than 'just free software'.

ridley scott, william gibson, ... oh, they are many..

I've always used web-based mail interface for my university account for accessing my 30mg space on the Unix servers, which I could only access with telnet from outside after dialing-up. Now after finishing university and my account being deleted, this gmail thing will be a blessing. But this invites and community stuff gives me the creeps! Thanks anyway for the opportunity!!

I know that you must be getting a bunch of e-mails' for the invitation, I thought that I might give a shot at that too. Everything else is upto God.
Thanks for at least giving me a chance.

Long time, no see...
Heh, I suppose I'm a bit late (as usual), but what about giving away Gmail addresses to acquaintances? In such a case count me in. Whatever, I'm in your FIFO now. ;)

Wanna give a chance....Like the idea of geting free things...Everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Worth a shot!
