It seems that if you mention GMail, you get comments from people looking for invitations. I laughed at the comments on Simon’s post until I posted a brief link to a GMail-related service and the same thing happened. 40-odd people begging for invites and I wasn’t even offering any.
Well, since I’m a glutton for punishment, here goes nothing: I actually have three Gmail invites to give away, assuming anyone cares anymore. They won’t be going to any of these people or to anyone who begs in this thread. I will give them to the first three people who link to this post on their weblog and post the URL in a comment here. Yes, it has to be a weblog. Your weblog, not mine or some other innocent party’s. If you set up a weblog for the sole purpose of getting a GMail invite from me, I won’t disqualify you, but I do reserve the right to laugh at you.
Update: One invite sent so far. (James, it’s on the way.)
Update 10/27/04: Two invites sent. One left. (Christopher, it’s on the way.)
Update 10/31/04:Three invites sent. (Hector, it’s on the way.)
THAT’S ALL FOLKS. Thread Closed.
