TBT: eBay...

I received a notification in the eBay app today that the service is celebrating its 25th anniversary right now. 25 years? That’s crazy! 

They also included data on my time as an eBay-er. This is pretty cool.

This isn't 100% indicative of my full time on eBay, though. I had an account back in grad school and used it to buy an Atari 2600 and several games as well as some books and a copy of Analyze This on DVD. Why do I remember buying that movie so well?

I lost my login creds after years of non-use. I couldn’t even remember the username I used and no longer had the associated email address for the purpose of recovery. So I started a new one.

This one has been going strong for 17 years. Maybe too strong. 

What a long, strange trip it’s been.
