You'd think I was giving out free money or something.

They're not pre-IPO shares, just gmail invites.

It's funny. Almost nobody asked me for an account until I mentioned it on a mailing list earlier today. Now I've probably sent out 20 invites in 10 minutes.

A few smart cookies assumed I had some invites stashed away when I first talked of spamming my gmail account (thanks for all the "spam", btw). I purposely didn't mention invites because I wanted to see how long they'd last if I didn't.

The answer: way, way longer than expected.

Now I guess I need to be selective or something. If I was greedy, I'd just run a dutch auction on eBay or something. But I won't. Direct PayPal is so much easier!

Just kidding.

Unless I'm not.

I figure that this post will pretty much clear out what remains of my invite quota.

Update: Yeah, that was pretty effective.

I fixed the (mis)spelling of your name in my email address and I'm reading your MySQL book thru Safari (and probably going to buy it because it seems useful so far), so if you have any invites left, Jeremy, (or anybody else with invites) please send one over ;)

How often do you get new invites? And does that depend on anything (like how often you use your gmail account, how fast you skip your invites, how long time you have had your account, how many mails you send or...)

# Sherry said:

I have 3 invites left!

If you want them you have to EMAIL me, as I dont check here often. I just have extra and looked to post them somewhere. This is the only place I posted btw...

To answer the question on how often you get them... it's a one time deal... I'm new to Gmail, been using it, and got the notice I can invite only 2 weeks ago.

Happy Holidays!!!!!

on November 29, 2004 02:29 AM
# Sherry said:

Hi all.
I am OUT of invites! I'll post when I get more.

Alex: Gmail, after about 3 months, gives you a little link on the left side under the menu options to invite 6 of your friends to Gmail. Every time you send one out, that # decreases.
