988 Back where it Belongs
this journal entry posted on April.22.2005 by AMPro
In 1991 I decided to become a software designer for real. For me this meant buying a P.O. Box and then cranking out some shareware video games and waiting for the checks to start rolling in at the P.O. Box. The P.O. Box that I bought was #988 at my local post office. I was very proud of it. Over the years I had t-shirts printed with the P.O. Box address on it, I named the Letter column of my newsletter "988" in honor of the P.O. Box and over the years I actually did get quite a few letters and even some checks (though not enough to make me rich or famous).
So in the early 2000s I became really busy with a lot of other stuff. AMProSoft sorta fell by the wayside. The web page didn't get updated much. One day to my horror I went to the post office and found out that I had failed to pay for my P.O. Box for quite a while (I was pretty sure I had paid but I guess I was mistaken) and THEN they sold my P.O. box -- the P.O. Box that had been AMProSoft's physical home for more than 12 years-- to someone else.
Yesterday I was at the post office mailing out a job application and mailing stuff to the beautiful and talented Heather K, and on a whim I decided to ask them to check to see if P.O. Box 988 was available. The clerk didn't exactly want to. He didn't think there was a good chance that any specific P.O. Box would be available and he felt like he was a very busy man apparently. But I had him check anyway and low and behold... P.O. Box 988 belongs to AMProSoft once more!! Mu-hu-ha-ha-ha!
