This weekend, I had to answer a support call for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Call Center hosted at my University. For some reason (actually 2), the call center couldn’t connect to the SOE network in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. After pulling a Nugget and rescuing the call center, I had a chance to chat with one of SOE’s technicians. He asked me if I used Google’s new email service, Gmail. I told him that I didn’t have an account. He said, “Want one?” What? Hell, yes! So he sent me an invite and I was on my way.

Well, this morning, Google informed me that I had six invitations to give to my peeps. So I hooked up the girlfriend. Then I handed some accounts out to my boys, including one to Nugget. Let me just say that Gmail is hot. There are some quirks since it is still in beta, but I love the way it handles email. Messages are grouped by ‘conversations’ rather than date. It has a killer autocomplete feature. It’s also mad simple. What else could you want from a FREE email program?


  1. Big ups to J-Nort for hooking me up with the account!
