Random stuff from today:

Quote - "Street Fighter. That's why I got a C in Calculus."

Note to self : "dupe" = "duplicate"

And a grand and magnificent thing happened today.... I GOT A G-MAIL INVITE!
*dances around the street singing the G-mail song* :-D

Oh, and for those of you living under rocks or in various caves, I present to you:

G-MAIL

Gmail is pretty nice. I bought an invite off of eBay a few days ago. RIT apparently doesn't let us keep our addresses after we graduate, so it might be something nice to hold on to.

That's what I'm thinking... although, you can get a free Alum address... it's not the same address as your @rit.edu e-mail, which I'll probably do, too. I'm starting to migrate all my memberships and such over to GMAIL! :-D

Did they change their policies? I graduated in 2000... while they readily disabled my account, they didn't delete it. My web site is still up and I still get my original e-mail addresses forwarded.

I'm going on hearsay. I also have no desire for an alumni address. I don't see any reason to stay associated with RIT once I'm gone.

You got skipped
Mine web account was deleted 6 months after my last class... but the email still forwards I think. All I ever get is spam.

Re: You got skipped
Maybe my account was flagged weird for having taken a web design course and that made their purge script not find it.

And yeah, all I too get through my RIT addresses anymore is spam, except for ritsma.

If you ever find another invite in your hands, you better damn well think of me!

A big deal? No... not really
What's so big about this G-mail thing? cause it looks about as crappy as the old Yahoo accounts... the new hotmail is better by far for setup...

Re: A big deal? No... not really
Was wondering the same thing... I hadn't heard of it till she got it. 8-Þ
And Yahoo just revamped their whole system and whatnot. I actually like it.

Re: A big deal? No... not really
Well, first of all... it's run by Google, who is not E-VILLE (as the likes of yahoo and hotmail are. :-P ). And second of all, it is a whole new way of thinking about mail. I'm sure you'll hear more about it out of me as I start using the system. *does another happy dance*

It's also just exciting in general, because I love it when Google comes out with something new. They always do a really great job. Like their Language Tools, I'm in L-O-V-E with the Google Toolbar, not to mention Google Image Search, their news page, etc, etc, etc. I just really love the way they implement things. And I'm hoping that G-mail is just another one of their amazing accomplishments.

Re: A big deal? No... not really
Well then, this link gives me even more reasons not to want a gmail account... I think I'll stick with what I've already got, thank you very much...

Re: A big deal? No... not really
I don't know, I just read through all of that (and a whole bunch of the links) and I still plan on using Gmail as my primary e-mail account in the future. Many of the points they make focus on the lack of privacy, but privacy is the first thing that I'm willing to sacrifice for more accurate, personalize results. *shrug* Maybe it's just me.

Re: A big deal? No... not really
what's more accurate and personal about it? Ok, so it has an archive system... big deal, it's called using folders... an email search? I'm pretty sure outlook express does the same thing. Sorry, just not impressed.

Re: A big deal? No... not really
It's smooth, fast, high quality, and run by a company that's likely to keep it that way. It's enough to make me consider ditching the old POP3 client, which is something I've *never* done, because I normally hate webmail interfaces.
