Gmail hasn't pleased everyone, however. Many privacy advocates are unhappy with the targeted ads that appear inline with the messages. Some even have set up sites proclaiming how "creepy" gmail is. To each their own, I guess.
To ksra_sra, who gave me the account, I simply say thank you. It took me a while to create the CD full of software I promised at gmailswap, but I mailed it yesterday so it should be there soon. You're globe-hopping right now anyway, as documented in your blog, so hopefully you haven't missed it too much. Loved the balloon animals, by the way.
