    Hello. Some of you might already know this, but this is a great tip that will help you in computing in general.

    If you have a gmail account, and want to sign up for the same sight multiple times using the same email, all you have to do is put a dot somewhere in your email.
    For example, if you email is [email protected], sign up with [email protected], [email protected]

    Remember, this only works with Gmail, because in Gmail, it doesn't count the dots in your email. So [email protected] and [email protected] are the same.


    Just a tip for anything on the internet.

    All you have to do is use your name and a + and label it how you wish.

    For instance if your gmail account is [email protected]

    E-mauks sent to all these (and anything after the plus for that matter)

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    will all be delivered to the [email protected] account.

    This way you can send yourself stuff categorized or see from the address where the email is from.

    Sorry man, but the . will not work in gmail, that will be a different email address. You need to use a + instead.

    The dot works and will all be sent to the same email. I use it all the time. I didn't know about the + one though.
