Well anyone ever heard of www.gmailswap.com? It's a site were you can find out what people are willing to trade for one of your gmail account invites. gmail = googlemail, a free webmail system with 1Gig of storage run by everyones favorite search engine, Google. Problem is it is still in beta and the only way you can get one is have someone else invite you, current members get a limited number of invites to send out so it is hard to get one if you don't know someone who has one already.

Well the Geek part of me wants one bad so I posted the following as a swap:

Ever want to learn how to shoot a handgun but don't know where to start? Here is your chance!

I will provide ammo and handguns along with professional instruction for one day. I am a Marine Corps trained Marksmanship Instructor with over 8 years experiance. Will teach you proper saftey and handeling and work with you for one full day. We will start with sitdown instruction in basic safety and handeling followed by live fire range time.

You can come to one of my local ranges, or if you find a range in your area I will come to you. Let me know where you live if interested and we will work out something.

I live on the central east coast of Florida for referance.

If I get someone to accept the trade not only will I get a highly prized gmail account, but I'll get to teach a new shooter... I call that a win/win situation in my book!

Good luck but it seems a bit much to go through for an e-mail account from an anti-gun company.

...a highly prized gmail account...

Sounds like a valuable chewing gum wrapper to me, especially considering Google practices anti-Second Amendment bigotry.

My Yahoo mail is 2gb, but I pay for it in combo with my dsl.

Here's the main scoop on Google being anti gun: http://www.packing.org/talk/thread.jsp/15786/

Regardless of that I certainly wouldn't trade much to get something that's in beta that will be free later.
