Hotmail vs. Gmail and a Profound D.T. Suzuki Quote

Well, I've finally had it with hotmail. My wife has been trying to get me to switch to gmail for sometime now and I'm been meaning to fully switch over for some time. I already have a gmail account but have, up until now, rarely used it. There are just so many features that gmail has that hotmail falls miserably short in comparison and now I'm having trouble logging into my hotmail account so it's time to jump ship on it.

So, from now on if you want to contact me via email you can find me at

I'll still check my hotmail address for awhile but the gmail address will be my long term account.

Now, onto the good stuff:

What one thinks or reads is always qualified by the proposition "of" or "about," and does not give us the thing itself. Not mere talk about water, nor the mere sight of a spring, but an actual mouthful of it gives the thirsty complete satisfaction.

- D. T. Suzuki, Essays in Zen Buddhism

Yes, I am grateful too. I shouldn't be so annoyed with hotmail. It's just time to move on. Change is inevitable, even in email servers!!

Impermanence brings new opportunities!!!


Yeah, I dig that picture too. It's very interesting.

You're welcome regarding the picture although I didn't take it myself. I couldn't find a person to credit unfortunately so I'm not sure who the real artist might be.

I was taken by the smile too. :)

Gmail is so much better than Hotmail. Really all Microsoft products should be avoided as much as possible, from Windows, to Office, to Internet Explorer, to MSN.

I suggest Ubuntu or Fedora Linux,, Firefox, and Google.

BTW great blog. Wanna exchange links with me at
