Anybody have any invites they'd like to send my way? I've heard they are closed for now, then I heard they weren't... I figured here wouldn't be a bad place for me to ask for one.

Happy July 4th weekend!

I sent this to Rugbier in a PM as well -- They don't officially have invites open anymore, but I can share a link with you and you'll be able to create an account that way. It's a bit of a loophole. There should be a "learn more" link or something in the email. I just sent it out.

It's a great product. They had to close invites down because they had too much interest for their test period.

EDIT: if anyone else to try it out just give me the local-part of your gmail addy.

I think they closed this "loophole" 2 days ago.

This is what it says when you try the "loophole".

Snip
Google+ Help
Someone is sharing with me on Google+ but I can’t join. What gives?
That’s great that someone wants to share with you! And while you can check out what they wanted you to see, you can’t quite yet join Google+. Google+ is in limited Field Trial. During this time, when something is shared with you by someone on Google+, you'll receive it via email but won't be able to comment or engage with the content like other Google+ users. You'll be able to join Google+ as we let more users in over time.
In the meantime, you can poke around here to see all the cool things that you’ll be able to do with Google+.

Well I'm not sure what to tell you except you're doing something wrong. I've gotten 4 or 5 people in just today. The only problem has been a slight delay in email delivery.

They're planning on opening it up to invites again relatively soon. Their development pace has been pretty quick.

You're pretty good then, seeing as Google has closed all registration. Just search the Internet and you can read all about it. The "loophole" everyone is talking about has been closed for at least 2 days, maybe longer.

Here is a screen-shot of what you get when you click the "Learn More" tab in the Google+ email. (yes, all cache is cleared, page refreshed, etc etc etc)

Don't use the old version. Cool, something else I can ignore.
