Hi all,

In case here are still some old Cypherpunks among
the community, it would be nice if you have something
to share, from the old days back then.

I like to start. In the mid nineties I mailed Hal
about his bignum software he has written in Java. At
that time one of his Cypherpunk Remailers ran under
the email address @shell.portal.com. Java is nowadays
owned by Oracle and if you enter portal.com in your
Web Browser it redirects to Oracle. :-)

opentimestamps.org runs one server named finney. :-)

The Nym Team [1], big fans of Hal named their new testnet
Finney and their test tokens HAL. :-)
