Amail through Fmail were not successful. Where they failed Gmail will succeed. I described it as the best April Fools joke this year.

The genius of this prank is that it is real. All 1GB each of it is real. And so many people were convinced it wasn’t. Bravo to Google. I think I’ll have me one of those spamtraps.

Well now I have one, thanks to Asa Dotzler, Mozilla developer and very close friend of mine. Okay that might not be true; but I am a little proud that the invitation wasn’t based solely on giving one to whoever asked.

Now I’m off to store all of my emails in about the most secure and reliable off-site backup the world has ever seen. I will be using Cheah Chu Yeow‘s gExodus.
