The 3rd Dimension – So little to say and so much time!!!


This is for the “G’s”

With all the correspondance I get from my friends I found a lot of them ( most actually ) use gmail accounts. In fact between gmail and yahoo and AOL I think I may be the only remaining person I know who uses comcast e-mail. Why do I do it? I guess if you get crap shovelled down your throat long enough you start liking it. In retrospect though comcast was a great ISP but the last 3 years they have really tumbled downhill (along with a short stint near the end of 08 and early 09 where the email couldn’t be accessed and service would cut out once a day). They’ve gotten better again so I guess someone out there’s listening 😀 Then again an ISP which DESTROYS the link to get to your e-mail inbox when you have projects is a bit wtf’ish in my book. Because of the changes non hardcore computer users pretty much were not able to open up comcast e-mail until they completed development on SmartZone. That’s like living in your house one day then having the city evict you in the middle of the night, board it up, and tell you that you can never go back in again until they are done remodeling the entire house for no practical reason. Anyway on to the topic…

I just found out I had a gmail account. Actually while gmail was still in beta. Actually like in 5 years ago. This one’s for the G’s!

First off, welcome. And thanks for opening a Gmail account. We hope that Gmail will become something you use everyday.

Gmail is different from other types of email, so we put together some information to help you get started. But you’re probably eager to start playing around with your new account, so we’ll keep it short. (After all, you can always come back to this email later—just search for it.)

  • Check out our Getting Started guide. It’ll introduce you to many of Gmail’s features.
  • Visit our Help Center to search for answers, browse frequently asked questions, and learn about the cool things you can do with Gmail.
  • Import your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, Hotmail, and others to Gmail. Email your friends to tell them your brand new Gmail address.

You may also have noticed some text ads or related links to the right of this message. They’re placed there in the same way that ads are placed alongside Google search results and, through our AdSense program, on content pages across the web. The matching of ads to content in your Gmail messages is performed entirely by computers; never by people. Because the ads and links are matched to information that is of interest to you, we hope you’ll find them relevant and useful.

We’re working hard during our limited test to improve Gmail and make it the best webmail service around. Thanks for taking the plunge with us. We hope you enjoy Google’s approach to email.
Thanks,

The Gmail Team

P.S. You can sign in to your account any time by visiting http://gmail.google.com

Yep that was a g-mail “welcome” letter from November 2004 – way back before it was cool or even public methinks. This is great it’s like opening up a time capsule. Well more like a capsule you bought at a dollar store put nothing in and buried in your backyard so some far off civilization thousands of years from now can laugh at how sorry your life was :-P. I rather actually enjoy my life very much thank yous.
