I use rickscully as my gmail handle, and am trying out Google+ as of today.

Cool. I just now added you to one of my circles.

I'm on it but can't figure out how to do anything.

Still waiting for an invite, or for invites to be open again.

I think I sent you something Gary. Maybe check one of your now less-used email account.

I think they MAY have closed the backdoor hack, but I will try and send something to you, Gary.

Yeah, I got it NoMich, but they had already closed the door. So when I click on 'learn more' it just takes me to the start page.

Hopefully they open it up again soon. Thanks Nomich and terrapin.

They keep opening the spigot and turning it back off quickly because apparently they keep hitting the max number of persons.

See Google, what happens when you don't automatically opt people into your latest social scheme? They don't get pissed, they clamor to get in.

I miss the days when I traded gmail invites for Amazon gift certificates.

No, I'm not in, and I'm still unconvinced as to why I should be. We'll see.

I think I sent something to you as well, Ufez. Check all of your email accounts.

I hate Google's invite system.

In real life, I don't get a lot of posh or exclusive invites, but at least online I used to be able to adopt something early and feel like I was one of the cool kids. Now, every day that goes by that I'm not invited to Google's latest and greatest cool club, I feel like more and more of a schlub.

Or get multiple invites and can't use the goddamn things. Awesome.
