Gmail - free Giga e-mail account!!

Long time ago I decided that lot of stuff is being stored on my Gmail account, stuff which I need so backup is required here...

The recent announcement of shutting down the Google reader account got to push me to take an action now and backup my Gmail account.

Lots of guides on how to backup Gmail accounts, but the interesting thing is that I've looked what's the oldest email I got there on my account and found that the first email on my account is the invitation I've sent to my friend.. Yeah what a crazy days... Back then you couldn't simply sign-up to Gmail, you had to get invited by someone you know and then you would get 20 invitations to invite your friends...

Shmuel Krakower has invited you to open a free Gmail account. The invitation will expire in three weeks and can only be used to set up one account. To accept this invitation and register for your account, visithttp://gmail.google.com/gmail/a-6872ae05d5-df976c5f73-1f73df1ad0 Once you create your account, Shmuel Krakower will be notified with your new @gmail.com address so you can stay in touch with Gmail! If you haven't already heard about Gmail, it's a new search-based webmail service that offers: - 1,000 megabytes (one gigabyte) of free storage- Built-in Google search that instantly finds any message you want- Automatic arrangement of messages and related replies into  "conversations"- Text ads and related pages that are relevant to the content of your  messages Gmail is still in an early stage of development. But If you set up an account, you'll be able to keep it even after we make Gmail more widely available. We might also ask for your comments and suggestions periodically and we appreciate your help in making Gmail even better. Thanks, The Gmail Team To learn more about Gmail before registering, visit:http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/benefits.html

Chrome dev tools missing data on network tab

While analyzing page loading times I noticed the following strange timing:

No matter how you sum this up, it ain't gonna get to 47.84 seconds!
What's wrong here? I don't know, not the first time I see this strange timings... any ideas?
