I never download anything in Safari this slow. It’s easily hundreds of times faster. It’s been well over a month since I setup my GMail IMAP. I’ve done some initial investigation, but nothing concrete showed up that I hadn’t tried. Any ideas?
I never thought I’d like spam, but nowadays it’s occasionally useful. GMail is great at getting rid of unwanted spam, and I like that. Occasionally one gets through that advertizes a programming or web development related product. In these cases, GMail really shines. I simply click on the Google AdWords relevant to the spam to look at products that meet the same niche, but use legitimate advertising methods. Ah. GMail helps fill the product needs AND control spam. Lovely.
OK. I’m selfish. I want to know what GMail thinks of the various suggestions I’ve sent in. I want to know if I’m wrong, if I’m being ignored, or if I’m shelved while some really cool stuff happens first. I want to see what others have suggested, and vote for things I like. So it’s official. The Open Source way of life has permanently corrupted me. I want deep information publicly accessible. I want to participate, and I want to see the group’s reaction to my input. I don’t care so much about Google’s code. I want Google to use JIRA in the Open.
