Gmail: wtf is going on over there?

Postby Spazmogen on Wed Feb 02, 2005 10:14 pm

I've had invites appear and disappear recently. I've also seen what looked to be a log in screen that was no longer in Beta...

Now today I notice this:

I some how get 50 invites to give away? My other account only has 4 of the original 6 remaining. I figure its a type-O of some kind.


Anyone else getting a high amount of invites to give away or getting the non-beta screen from time to time?

Yeah, I use one for regular e-mail and the other address for when I sign up for a new site or mailing list. Basically, the 2nd one is a spam gathering account.

So kind of like me, but my spam address is an msn one, since I get so much spam there without even signing up for stuff!
