Just as I was preparing to hand out a bunch of Gmail accounts to the random people posting comments asking for them, I found I could no longer log into Gmail on this computer. Anna’s tablet PC let me log right in, but I could only get as far as the loading page on this computer.
Being the computer technician that I used to be (I used to work at a computer store) I figured that the problem had to be software and that it was a scripting problem, in addition to the page just saying “loading…” there was that handy dandy broken script icon at the bottom of the page. So I went to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer page and reinstalled my copy of IE 6.
Miraculously I can now log back into Gmail, and I will be awarding the free accounts today. I expect that next time I have free accounts to give out more people will comment on why they deserve it – and I’ll happily give them out again!
