In 1998 Jared, and many other current subscribers of the Oracle-l list were on a list called email@example.com, but it went down for days at a time. The owner of the list did not respond to inquiries regarding the list, which was rather frustrating. So, firstname.lastname@example.org was born.
Oracle-L moved from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org in April 2000.
Oracle-L moved from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org, where it is currently hosted, in January 2004.
