Hotmail? (Score: 2, Informative)

I can't remember, it was either Yahoo or Hotmail (but I can't see the latter as an option unless I'm missing something)

Oh yeah, forgot Hotmail. Bummer once these polls are launched you can't modify them.

Hotmail here. I used to tell people that it was "hotmale" because I thought that was funny.

I think we could save some time with all these recent "My First _______" polls, and just have one that directly asks readers "How Old Are You?" and be done with it...

Then you'd be able to do a pretty good job estimating what their first email address, first gaming system, first computer system, etc., was very likely to have been.

Mine was mindspring which was eventually swallowed by earthlink. Of course I am not counting my Ga Tech school email account since I rarely used it.

It would be karmic to vote for "Netcom" then... They got swallowed by Mindspring, before they were in-turn swallowed by Earthlink.

But at about the same time I also set up a UUCP account.
