My lucky day - got google account without numbers


Yeh, 8-letter account name - quite reasonable, easy to remember - no digits needed. Must be my lucky day.

As an early AOL subscriber, i had a 5-letter (i think) user name, but no longer remember it, nor subscribe to AOL. That was pre-internet, when they were called electronic bulletin boards.
