  • I tried to get it touch with a buddy of mine for 15 years after I was out of the Air Force. All I had was his old home town and his name. Over the years I would call information and try to track him down. Went nowhere.
    One day I got an email with the subject "I finally tracked you down."
    Sounded like spam to me, but just something about his email address sounded vaguely familiar, so I happened to open it instead of bit-bucketing it.
    Was I glad I hadn't trashed it.
    I'm sure huge amounts of email gets thrown away because of spam. Steve Ciarcia, in his last editorial in Circuit Cellar magazine, says that he request people that write to him to have distinctive, as obviously as possible non-spam subject lines so that he will actually read their messages instead of throwing them away.
