Regeneration Project

Just before Christmas Metal Toast reached it’s 3rd birthday which made me think what exactly have I done with the site over the past few years. I’ve only ever had one long stint of a running site lasting for about 6 months. All the other time it’s been sitting there gathering dust.

However people clicking the signup link from within Gmail will have to register an @googlemail.com address. I’m not complaining!

UPDATE (19 Dec 2009): This article is extremely out of date but you can still claim an @gmail.com address by going to www.gmail.com and clicking sign up via a proxy such as www.hidemyass.com.
