Actually, it's not my decision that limits this to six. Google chooses how many invitations a user gets, and I only had six to give out. However, the people I give invitations to may get the capability to invite others, so maybe they'll be kind enough to come back here and offer invitations to others. :-) (Anybody who wants to do that can post the offer in the Announcements forum.)

However, the good news (more or less) is that one invitation is still available because both you and sparekh didn't follow the rules -- you didn't post your first and last names. I didn't ask for them out of curiosity; Google requires them for Gmail invites.

So, the first one of you two (or anybody else, actually) to post your first and last names will get the final invitation.

Hi Steve

I have just set up my HP5550 to access the internet via bluetooth when connected to my laptop. I did a google search in order to find websites which are designed for use on handheld devices and came across this (rather old) page http://www.pocketpcmag.com/_archives/ma ... cketPC.asp

How EXACTLY I got to your page from there I cant recall, because looking at the page now I can not see a link to svpocketpc.com :?

Perhaps you can figure it out!

Anyway, I have signed up for my gmail account and I thankyou very much for the opportunity. Your site is obviously now on my "visit often" list :D

Cheers

I can't. I didn't post about the forums on Pocket PC Magazine's site, and the forums aren't linked to from most of my main pages (they're still in stealth mode).

I hope you enjoy the Gmail account. However, I'll be the first to admit there's no reason to visit here that often. I'm lucky if I update the site once a day with a new link or two.

I'm starting the forums mainly to allow feedback on my reviews and opinions, but have no plans to expand this to another news and community site. There are lots of great sites (see my Links page) that do that better than I could. I'm just trying to put up a resource for Pocket PC owners, and I hope people find it useful.

You read correctly and are lucky. I just sent you the last invitation.

Sending Invitations

I don't know how Google decides whether you get invitations or how long it takes to get them. I got my Gmail account between September 11-14 and noticed I had six invitations between September 24-26, so that may give you some idea of how long it takes. I may have gotten the invitations before September 24, but I hadn't checked Gmail between the time I got my account and then.

When you get the ability to invite people, you'll see a small notification bar at the top of your Inbox telling you that you can invite people.

I don't know if I'll get any more invitations. However, maybe some of the people who got one from me have invitations now, so they might be able to give you one.
