Free $199 Software

I contacted Microsoft with a couple of questions about formatting my hard drive and re-installing the OS. My copy of Windows XP Home Edition is the upgrade version. I was not sure if I could do a full clean install with it. I got an email back from Microsoft support today that said they are sending me the full version of Windows XP Home edition for free. So that is cool. I picked up a Microsoft Fingerprint Reader today at Sam's Club. So all my fingers are registered and work with it. The only down side is that it does not work with firefox.

Gmail Express Invites

Google's Gmail has changed the way to give out invites for new accounts. Since invites are the only way to get Gmail, they are a very important part of how Gmail spreads and becomes more popular, and Google is just making it easier. Just type the email address in the little box, and click send. Update: I have 50 invites now. So if you want one contact me with your email address.
