In any case, I have been remiss in not thanking him for the gmail invite. So thank you, turg, for your generosity. I feel *so* l337 to be among the first of the gmail crowd (well, as first as I care to be, anyway).
I have changed my publicly listed address to the gmail account, and will probably only check Yahoo rarely. As they say down at the phone company (ha! Phones. How quaint!): Please make a note of it.
