GMAIL ANNOYANCES

GET GMAIL

The Annoyance:

Everyone's talking about Gmail and you may already have an account. That's swell for you-but I don't have one. And I haven't a clue where to get one.

The Fix:

It's a bummer. At press time, Gmail was still in testing (known cryptically as "beta"), and most of us can't get a Gmail account until it's publicly released. The trick is to find someone with an account, because they can send you an invitation. Beg, plead, and, if necessary, grovel until they send you the invite. One way to get an account is at the Gmail Forums page (go to http://snipurl.com/swapgmail, scroll down a bit, and click "Accounts and Invitations"). Traders desperate for an invite have offered such goods as a "one slightly used husband," "6 months of homemade cookies," and "a pound of 100% pure kona coffee." Another approach: do a Google search for "gmail invites" or "gmail invitations" and find a web site that may let you trade your first born for an account.
