Searching Google for “Who is Alan Moore?” shows an impressively relevant combination of answers, images, and top sites.
As you may know, Google’s blogging tool Blogger.com is often very slow (it was so slow I moved my blog away from it and onto my own blogging software months ago). While Google didn’t cure the cause yet, they fixed one symptom: lost posts.
My main problem, and a reason why I left the service, was not that I’d lose posts (I would simply copy them into a Gmail to myself), but that I couldn’t post when I wanted to. Preventing the user to blog is the number one thing a blogging application should not do.
You can use Gmail to store web pages. This comes in handy when you register somewhere, and you need to keep a version of the final registration data (which you are usually urged to print out).
To save the page in Gmail, simply copy the relevant part into the clipboard by selecting the page in the browser. Then go to Gmail, and compose a new mail. If you are in text-mode, switch to Rich Formatting. Now paste the clipboard into the text box. Give a relevant subject, and you’re done. For easier finding later on, you may also want to add a label like “Saved infos.”
