1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The more I use gmail, the more I hate my other email accounts. I'm sure there are plenty of us with invites, and plenty more still looking for an account, so I thought I'd create this post. I have 5 invites, first five to respond to this thread with their email addy wins. The only thing I ask in return is: 1) promise to do one good deed today, or 2) promise to donate $1 to any charitable cause.

    After five respond, anyone else with extra invites should post to solicit more needy people, and so on.

    Note: if you're one of the first five to respond, and don't receive an invite, check your junk mail box, as I hear that hotmail and aol are blocking them.

    What exactly is Gmail - can you guys please elaborate?

    Also, Renault, does the styleforum count as a 'charity'? Anyone have the paypal address for styleforum anymore? I'd like to donate, finally.

    The first rule of Gmail is that you don't talk about Gmail. Â The second rule of Gmail is that YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT GMAIL. Â J/K. Gmail is google's web-based email. Â Messages/replies are displayed as threads (or "conversations"). Â You get 1G of storage. Â Best part: you don't have to organize your mail, you can search for messages via keywords. Â Right now, they are testing their beta version, available by invite only. The styleforum isn't charity, but I'll make an exception [​IMG] Besides, donating to the styleforum is a good deed.

    I'd quite like to have a play too - assuming it's available to non-US residents...

    edit: to remove email address
