Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Tip: Infinite Gmail addresses

If you have a Gmail account you can actually modify that address to have tons of Gmail addresses.

How it works is that you can insert any number of dots, anywhere in your user name. So if your e-mail is: someone@gmail.com you can have any of the following e-mail addresses.

  • some.one@gmail.com
  • s.o.m.e.o.n.e@gmail.com
  • s..ome..on..e@gmail.com

You can also add a + after the user name like so:

  • someone+work@gmail.com
  • someone+todo@gmail.com
  • someone+fwd@gmail.com

This tip has been covered by a few other websites. Here’s to sharing. *cheers*

    This is a really neat trick to isolate spammers. You’ll be able to tell which websites are selling your email address. :]

    Hello! I had a count and some weeks ago I lost contact with it. I created another but I should like to get too the first one because I had many e-mails in my mailbox. May anybody help me? I asked for help to google but the answer was that my account was blocked. I don’t understand..
