    Just drop your email here and probably someone will send you, or specify your email in the profile.

    I'm sure I have some invites. Havne't checked in over a month. If you want, drop me an email and I'll give you one if I've got it.

    The Channel9 GoG list "hasn't been working" because GMail weren't giving members any more invites for a while.

    But GMail gave all users at least 6 more invites earlier today, and since then it looks like another 20 Channel9 users have received invites thanks to the GoG list. So give it another try - you're asking at exactly the right time to get one!

    (And to all Channel 9'ers who received their GMail account thanks to the GoG list, now's the time to repay the kindness and help out a stranger or two!)

    If you've got an extra $9-12 a year (can't remember the exact price) just use yahoo mail. You get 2G of storage, pop3 access, & address guard. I love it.

    haha - i clicked "Contacts" in gmail

    and an error box came up that said:

    " Grrrr.  You may have a pop up blocker. Please allow it to access this site"

    priceless.


    remember all the MS "Simplified error messages" talk?..

    yet we still get crazy technical errors

    - i think we need a few more "Grrr's" in windows

    Its come along way since "Would you like to see further DHCP Messages? Yes Cancel - but how HUMAN is Grrr? - I am not an animal! Smiley

    *** Have: Change desktop wallpaper wait screen text from Annie Hall:  La dee da... ****

    or

    "Windows Update needs to reboot in the middle of what you are doing:  Listen to us!   You were warned.  ****

    * on first inspection Gmail appears to be Piece One in a new effort to combine blog/rss/email and communication in one interface - even though the other pieces arnt in yet

    this is more than free email folks - its the P word ( paradigmgmgm )

    we shall see

    **Addition:  I sent a test email to myself - and it came with NO advertising on it ( like how hotmail puts that line of "Get hotmail" on every email

    those guys are too cool

    Maybe MS should talk to the people at Roland. My Roland E-96 gives error messages in a way that makes you scared to ever make a mistake again.

    Simply try pressing the 'Play' button of the sequencer when there's no disk in the drive:
    INSERT SONG DISK AND PRESS PLAY!

    Yep, in capitals, with the exclamation point, and in a nice blocky bold font filling the entire display too. You can imagine the keyboard thinking "You fool! How could you even consider pressing play without inserting a song disk?!? Average desk chairs must have a higher IQ than you. I don't know why I even bother trying to explain it!"
