Let's say you have a gmail account; something like, say, firstname.lastname@example.org (that's the official email for this blog, by the way; can you BELIEVE that chainsawpenguin was already taken??). Now let's say that your fearless penguin decides that he wants to create an account at some website that requires an email address.
He could, of course, just use his default address. However, he can also add "+" and some codeword, and it will still go to the original address! You literally can have an infinite number of gmail addresses, all going to the same mailbox.
etc etc etc
The great thing about doing this is that you can then filter incoming messages in gmail, and dump them into separate folders, all in one mailbox!
...it's possible that I'm a bit of a nerd.
Okay, so I have loads and loads of cool adventures that were had over the holidays (yes, I did sit and watch 12 hours of Doctor Who on Boxing Day! River Song's episodes in River Song's order!!), but I really must dash off to work, so I'll make this a quick one.
I recently went (on New Year's Eve, in fact) with a couple of my favorite peeps to the Crocker Art Museum here in Sacramento, which is currently featuring an absolutely phenomenal Norman Rockwell exhibit.
You all may be familiar with his amazing self-portrait:
Tomorrow, ADVENTURE!! :)
** Note: I'm going to spend the next few days catching you up on what happened over the holidays, but we'll get back to "real time" adventures soon enough. **
