I've had a Demon email address for 20 years, too! I feel strangely proud of it; there can't be many people who still use the same email address that they used in 1996. I began the process of transferring everything over to Gmail about 6 months ago, but ran out of steam half way through. I really must return to that project before my Demon email addresses disappear on me for good.

I know a few Demon users who have been loyal for a similar amount of time. I had been online for a couple of years before 1996 via the OU, but they stopped offering dialup connection facilities and told students to get their own ISP. Demon was regarded as the best at the time and on the "if it ain't broke" principle, I've remained with them ever since.

It really is the end of an era. :(
