10MinuteMail Mentioned in 2600

Home/10MinuteMail/10MinuteMail Mentioned in 2600

First, you have to understand how big a deal the 2600 Magazine is/was to me. When I was just a wee hacker on a 32MHz Apple finding a place that sold 2600 was like finding a place selling Holy Grails. We’d pour over the pages multiple times, and pass it around to all our computer inclined friends.

It’s a pure tech magazine, like W is to fashion. I’ve always had a ton of respect for it.

As such, when I found out that 10MinuteMail is mentioned, albeit in a secondary fashion, in an issue of 2600 I had to order a copy:) I’m sure many people won’t understand why an indirect mention in a cheaply printed, small distribution, magazine that most people have never heard of means more to me than being on the front page of Digg, Slashdot, and Yahoo Tech, but it does.

    No animals were harmed during the production of this post.
    So you’re pretty happy with 10minutemail being used in the way 2600 prescribe?
    ie. to circumvent paying the bastards who are circumventing paying the bastards
    (don’t worry I have and will donate to you. you bastard ;-)

    Congratulations dude. I use 10minutemail so much I’m almost inspired to create “11minutemail”
