How do I change my email address?
Often with free email services, people aren't happy with the email addresses that are available. After a while, they want a new email address that's "cooler" or more descriptive.

Hi Leo, I could not agree more. Attitude is the key to life. I've seen, as I'm sure you have, people who are wealthy and miserable, and people who have virtually nothing, and are happy. Attitude is the key. I started in working on computers when I got out of the US Navy in 1969. Went to work for NCR as a Tech Service Rep. I was trained on mag tape encoders. Which had actual hard core memory on two very large circuit boards. Got into several of our main frame computer centers. When I got laid of in '73 I was certain we had gone as far as we could in computers. Wow, we had not even touched the surface. And today almost forty years later I believe the same is true that we have not even scratched the surface of computing. I would love to be able to live to see the next forty years. I think it will be amazing. And, as you say, the key to it all is attitude.
ATTITUDE By Charles Swindoll The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. ? The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. ... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. ... I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.
