Doubtful, Yahoo's only 10 years old, according to one reference - and it
even includes what Yahoo originally stood for:

When this list was started, AltaVista was king with Yahoo not far behind,
IIRC; Google didn't come around for a few years after that.

>And did anyone save an old Google for the archives? :-)

Isn't that what Google's for? Saving things like [g]mail forever, even
after you delete it??? :-P

According to that, google's got just over 4 years to go before being ontopic...

{{ I just *gotta* add this!!! ;-) }}

Ya know, a simple google search found this and more!

Merry Xmas!
