Eight years ago this month, I bought a magazine in a computer store and it’s the first issue of that magazine. Since I was / am a collector of Premiere issues of magazines, I bought it without skipping a heart beat. Themagazine is called “NET”, the magazine talked about how to buy a 14.4 Kbps modem for US$ 200, about how to connect to a thing called “Internet”, aboutinstalling a new kind of software called “Browser”.

I learnt something new from that magazine, and dumped my Compuserve account (the de facto standard about bulletin board eight years ago) almost immediately and got an Internet account. One year later, I developed my first homepage … well, the rest is history.

Indeed, another reason I write this newsletter earlier because today is the Thanksgiving Day. Just in case you don’t know, the Thanksgiving Day has almost 380 years’ history (http://www.calendar-updates.com/Holidays/US/thanksgiving.htm).

Saw a big sign posted just above the entrance of Tunnel :

No one can recall what you said, just the impression you left behind.

Very true indeed, as you will not have second chance to leave a good first impression – so, try your best in everything you do.
