Mail Flashback

At a great wedding this weekend (just one week after Keith & Hannah’s super bash), I found myself randomly talking to another CS person. It may have not been that random, since I believe the seats, not just tables, were assigned.

Anyway, my favorite mail program from days long past, mm, was reintroduced to me. The distribution section gives you an idea of how old is old … BITNET *and* UUCP addresses are given:

“MM is available by anonymous ftp from columbia.edu (128.59.40.130), in the mm subdirectory. For information, send mail to info-mm-request@columbia.edu (Internet), info-mm-request@cunixf (BITNET), or …rutgers!columbia!info-mm-request (UUCP).”

Awesome.
