Did you know I bought AOL?

I bought AOL

It wasn't too long ago that I was on eBay looking for CDs and stuff, late one night (04/10/1999), that I came across a real gem: America Online! And the bidding was ridiculously low.

Seeing my opportunity, I quickly signed up for the eBay userid iboughtaol, and then I proceeded to bid. It only took a bid of $10.50 to beat out the previous high bidder, and then I was home free! AOL was mine!

Here's the proof!
See? Take a look!


UPDATE (05/10/1999): It seems that this was all a cruel hoax. eBay now says "(175905269) is invalid or no longer in our database."

Drat.
