I’ll get round to a huge Cc’d mail later, but as of now I’ll not be using GMail again. Instead, if you have been using that address, the one below works just as well – if not better.
Now of course I’ve got to go round altering a load of contact addresses but at least then I’ll be free of the big G – after all, they can close a service at their whim can they not so storage or not, if it goes, it goes. Aside from that I never kept huge amounts of mail (I downloaded everything and it came to ~5meg) so it’s no chore.
So … no picasa here anyway, no googlebot, no GWA, no GMail, no using of or references to anything from that company (apart from my header image) Good.
