I turned 10 in Yahoo!

I was updating my Yahoo! profile when I realized it; I’m actually a day past my 10th anniversary of opening a Yahoo! account.

Screen shot of my Yahoo! profile showing my joining date.

I feel that the date didn’t actually reflect my original joining date; instead, it is displaying the date when I merged my two Yahoo! accounts into one. If I remember correctly, I opened up a Geocities account in 1996, then Yahoo! started offering free e-mail accounts in 1997, and later Yahoo! and Geocities merged in ’98 which was why I ended up having two Y! accounts.

Anyhoo, that’s about the most interesting thing I found today 😀
