Just how many email addresses does one person need, anyway?

That’s the work-related question I’m pondering right now. Since it’s not really that important, it naturally led me to think of other things that aren’t really that important.

Interesting historical note, courtesy of wikipedia: As previously mentioned, the main character’s name was originally Ralph Hinkley, but after the assassination attempt of Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr. on March 30, 1981 (only 12 days after the pilot episode aired), the character’s last name was amended to “Hanley” for the Season 1 episode “Reseda […]
