What your e-mail address means…
I got on AOL and CompuServe, back in college, then later, me, dialing into the University’s mainframe.
From 1987 to about 1996, I was AOL, and in 1996, I was given a “free for life” AOL account. Supposedly grandfathered in. That went away in 2001, the last of the crash. Last of that cash, too.
“Free for life,” yeah, corporate speak for what?
By the end of 1998, I leased astrofish.net and that started the current run, still at it today. My first name, Kramer at my domain.
