Internet E-mail love

The first e-mail: 27 February 1997, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2008.

The first received e-mail stored in my trusty (yet exceptionally ugly) Eudora archives dates back to 27 February 1997. That was (almost) 11 years ago.

My previous e-mails—from 1995 to 1997—are lost. Don't worry, I had 11 years to get over it. Anyway; people, names, dates—having a BIG searchable archive proves to be very useful sometimes.

Internet. Just to put things in perspective: in 1997 Yahoo was still nursing its post-IPO hangover. Google was not incorporated yet. Hell, the internet domain google.com was still free! Yeah, I know.

Questions: How old is the oldest e-mail message stored on your computer? Do you intend to keep the mails you've got today until—say—2019, 11 years from now? Answer on your blogs.

Design What the scrub

Remember: when in doubt, use this

Helvetica — the body scrub type, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bangkok, 2007.

Helvetica "Goat's Milk + Salt" body scrub and other Helvetica products.

Found this in a Manga shop in Bangkok. I'm totally clueless, too.

On the other hand—you know those two holy sayings about it:

Nobody has ever been fired for choosing Helvetica.

and

When in doubt, use Helvetica.

So, all things considered, goat's milk looks like a safe bet.

To this:

Freezing dark, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2008.

Charming! An asphyxiating 50°C difference—more than enough to hate the latitude of 45° N.

It just ain't right.
