Ironically enough I had just reloaded my computer yesterday and downloaded Windows "Live" messenger. I remember the days when it was called "MSN Messenger". Those were the good ol' days.

Hell, I remember Hotmail before it had anything to do with Microsoft or Windows. I've managed to keep the same Hotmail account for 15 years now, signing up way back in those heady days when web-based email was such a novel and new thing, and a 5 megabyte inbox limit seemed plenty.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I just checked my account and see I registered in August of 1997... Man, how time flies.

I remember my compuserve account! And waking up to the sound of a 56k modem every morning as my mom checked her email. I still have my CS account, actually. I dont even know how to check the thing anymore lol.

Oddly enough I was just recounting how spammers had virtually killed the hotmail brand in the early days of internet mail. While the avenues for spamming aholes have expanded, back then every piece of shit spam mail seemed to originate from @hotmail.

I still view the address- even from people I know- as being sketchy. They would be wise to stick with @live, or anything else.

BTW, good one Hades.

I'm curious as to what will happen to @live.com e-mail addresses.
