I am currently on vacation, well visiting friends and family back in California. It was a fun weekend and will be returning back to Washington tomorrow morning.

So me and my wife a relaxing, she is reading a book and i am playing on the computer. Well I did finaly recieve an invite to Gmail. Although i have only been playing with it for an hour or so i thought i would take a few minutes to give my initial thoughts.

So far I am very impressed with its interface and functionality. The way it seems to me is that you could say it is Hotmail with way more storage, a more geek friendly interface and i have to say that the archival and label features are really nice. I have already started transfering some of my mailing list subscriptions and emails over to the new account. I have to say it is nice to have so much storage although i think i can probably blow through it in a year or so :)

Thursday, i have an appointment with the INS (well not called the CIS). Lets see if they'll be friendly considering that they are the ones who majorly screwed up.

UPDATE: I am getting a little tired of all the fake feedback to this article from people trying to mooch a gmail account invite from me. I have a limited number of invites and would rather use them on friends and family than some begging online stranger. Just go on ebay. There are plenty for sale (for cheap!) there.
