A decade of Hotmail

When I logged in to my Hotmail account today, I noticed the Registered since field which was set to 27th February, 2002. w00t, a decade had passed. 😀

I created that email account from my school’s computer lab, as part of settle down on one-email account. IIRC I went to school to collect my admit card for 10+2 board exams, and I sneaked into computer science lab, and created that account there. I kept checking it regularly in an effort to keep it active. It was crazy in those days when I didn’t have any internet connection at home, going to cybercafes, friend’s home, dad’s work place, and where not. It was a very special account for me, I interacted with lots of awesome/special friends through it, but unfortunately I didn’t have any emails that old, courtesy their 5MB limit. 🙁

Anyways, it is the only part of my Microsoft legacy, which I’m still carrying, and I hope to carry it for as long as possible, feeling nostalgic!
