    No kiddin. I messed around with a couple of those, but have had my yahoo address since 1997.

    Maybe I should get my name as domain. I'm sure it's available in all TLDs.

    DOS was originally a hacked together CP/M derivative for X86 processors. Before Bill Gates bought it after selling IBM an OS it didn't actually have, its name was QDOS, Quick and Dirty Operating System. Everything about it, including the CLI, was extremely limited and worst in class. Products like 4DOS helped, but for a real CLI, bourne shell derivatives are hard to beat.

    The coolest (and by "coolest" I mean "nerdiest") is to get your own domain name. Gmail is a good product if you don't mind them mining your email for advertising information.

    I think she got skeerd off by the goofballs here. She's probably having serious doubts about BH now that she's seen who he hangs out with online.

    Had a satisfying trainer workout Thursday, and got outside for an hour today. Hope to ride longer tomorrow. Paved roads are a lot more sketchy than the gravel roads right now. The new Wolvhammer boots are head and shoulders above my old Lakes. This is what it looked like:
