I have GMail!

Thanks to my friend Tom, I now have a GMail account. I don't get much mail there yet, mostly because at the moment Tom's the only one who knows the email address.

The interface to GMail is pretty simple and uncluttered. Haven't spent a lot of time getting down to learning more of the details. For categorizing mail, you use labels instead of shuffling them around to different folders. I think I'll like this because mail can have multiple labels. Stars let you flag mail for whatever purpose you want. And probably best of all, mail gets threaded, making it easier to keep track of things.

I've received all of 5 emails at my GMail account, and already I have 6 invites to dispose of. Oh, who to send them to...
