    I am mainly a Gmail user; however, from time to time I do have to access my YMail and scan thru to see if there are important emails. For the ones that use Ymail full time this can be very handy. :mrgreen:

    haha Nor do I, just wanted to see if anyone did! I can’t wait till Gmail finally integrates with Google Gears…then it’s really going to suck for Yahoo and Microsoft!

    Silly users? I dont think Yahoo users are Silly. Remember Gmail is popular only among geeks and Yahoo is still far far ahead than Gmail with a silly interface. 👿 Remember my post on % reasons why I dont like Gmail? :mrgreen:

    I dont think the integration with Google Gears is going to make Yahoo and Microsoft. I feel all these are used only by geeks and not by common people. If Yahoo decides to give POP access, then Gmail is going to suffer. 😈

    Actually, you’re right and Google needs to catch up a little with Yahoo considering it’s new email interface is way better than Gmail right now. I use the Greasemonkey script GMAIL Superclean to make it look nice!

    Hello Everybody

    Just wanted to share my new experience.

    If your Windows XP fails to run due to an error corresponding to lost HAL.DLL, invalid Boot.ini or any other critical system boot files you can fix this by using the XP installation CD. Just boot from your XP Setup CD and enter the Recovery Console. Then launch “attrib -H -R -S” on the C:\Boot.ini file and remove it. Launch “Bootcfg /Rebuild” and then Fixboot
