The G in Gmail


I can't believe it! I thought I was loosing my emails.

Early this week I noticed something very strange with my Gmail account. I was up at 65% usage one minute and down to 56% usage another minute. I know I wasn't loosing my mind, but my first thought was what happened to all my emails. I must have lost some, but no, that wasn't the case at all.

Google started bumping up the storage capacity on the Gmail accounts at a much faster rate than they were previously doing. The storage went through the roof. I think I was somewhere around 2.8 Gigabytes at one point, and then at the next point I had 3.4 Gigabytes or so. Now, in just a few days it has gone to over 3.6 Gigabytes and counting.

I consider myself a power user of Gmail. I use it to store everything. I even send emails to myself so I can find information for the future. Actually the sending of important reference material to myself has paid dividends in the past and into the future. No matter where I am, no matter which computer I am using, no matter what, I can find the information I saved online.

Now, my percentage of used area is headed south, which is making me feel really good, since I was trying to figure out what miscellaneous e-mails I might not need for the future. Now, I don't have to worry about it.

Thank you Google.
