Firefox Extension "Paste Ipsum
Migrated to Gmail
Follow-up to Gmail from Dave's Blog
|First I copied my address book… then realised I forgot to change e-mail address first (don't want to use my old nick 'Seppie' any more) so after signing up for a new account spent another 10 mins copying everything again.
BTW people I know please send me your latest contact details so I can keep them up to date! TIA
Anyway now all my accounts forward to Gmail, although a backup copy of both my Uni accounts' e-mails are kept on the uni server – just in case.
Emails from me will say they come from djmz.comATgmail.com, but the reply-to address is my primary e-mail address (DATve-Miller.com), which should still be used as it will always forward to my current email host.

|I've finally switched from IE to Firefox! There's even a Google toolbar available for it now. The latest version can import everything from IE, and my bookmarklets still work fine. :-)|

Getting To Know Your Friends
|Welcome to the summer edition of getting to know your friends. What you are supposed to do is copy (not forward) this entire e-mail and paste it onto a new e-mail that you'll send. Change all the answers so they apply to you, and then send this to a whole bunch of people including the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends, if you did not know them already…..
1. What time did you get up this morning?
2. Diamonds or pearls?
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
4. What is your favourite TV show of all time?
5. What did you have for breakfast?
6. What is your middle name?
7. What foods do you dislike?
8. What is your favourite crisp flavour?
9. What kind of car do you drive?
10. Favourite Sandwich?
11. Who do you think is a babe?
12. Favourite item of clothing?
13. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
14. What colour is your bathroom?
15. Favourite brand of clothing?
16. Where would you retire to?
17. Favourite time of the day?
18. What was your most memorable birthday?
19. Where were you born?
20. Favourite sport to watch?
21. Who do you least expect to send this back to you?
22. Person you expect to send it back first?
