I got Gmail!
yes! oh, it is so smooooooth.. I got Gmail courtesy of my now even dearer friend Rudy, thank you buddy! I love the power, efficiency, clean interface, fast response, keyboard shortcuts, no pop-ups, lots of space, and have yet to exploit its extra features.. now if I can only afford a winning bid for a small share of the soon-to-be auctioned Google stocks 🙁
