Saw the mention of 'EHLO' in a friend's blog, on an unrelated post. Took me back to the last couple of years at Karunya.
I remember how I used to read and reply to so many emails by 'telnet'ing into pop.gmx.net:110, and reading using RETR. It used to be so slow coz half the college is sitting there chatting/browsing/*. And I was too paranoid to pull email down onto to that box, which happened to be the college's secondary DNS server :P And all this in the middle of a lab session from some corner in the college :D
Hmm. Things have changed so much. These days kids carry laptops. They dont have to fight for shell accounts. They dont have to nose around the college network to find a way to the IRC channel. I dont think they even care. Shyte.
