Google Gmail Account Sizes Are Growing

I've accidently stumbled upon a fun fact about Google's gmail site... they have a rolling counter of the size of email account storage, and it's growing continuously. Here's the latest quote from the front page... (If you are a registered user, you'll need to log out first to see it.)
Quote:
[size=-1]2131.430241 megabytes (and counting) of free storage so you'll never need to delete another message.[/size]
It shows 2131 at the bottom of my inbox page also, so it seems that Google is growing the account storage allocations in some kind of slow incremental fashion. I like it!

What you're seeing no-doubt, is their algorithm calculating how much space is saved by consolidating pointers to duplicate messages/files/material stored on their shards. Its all basically a shared pool of free space that anyone has available to them... interesting idea though, and it gives me an idea for a project I've been working on. </stealthmode>

Just as a quick note, that counter's been running since April 1st continuously. It ran up a gig on Apr. 1st, and slowly ever since.

It's actually growing faster than the email I keep at the moment, so if it continues, I may never run out of space, lol
