Hmm. I just did the classic stupid thing. I tried this trick with the email name I had hoped to get, and it turned out the guy has the same name as me! Imagine that!

I had hoped to get firstname.lastname@gmail.com

Going to bed is starting to sound pretty logical.

awww... doesn't work anymore.

wow thats crazy sauce. Is there a way to turn that off?

Change your name in Gmail? Why is it such a big deal, anyway? My email is my full name...I'll let you take a wild guess what that is.

Damn fool! How will you hide when you make asinine replies to people on Y combinator in a lame attempt at humor?

Change the name associated with your email account to your email address.
