I still remember the friendships I made at Yahoo. The cute
girlfriends I have and how it changed my life. I remember I was
just some office kid opening up emails in outlook 2000. But I risen
to be so much more. This mysterious person helped me do it.
Eventually, I was promoted up Vice President of Security at Yahoo!
and made nearly six figures a year.
Nearly, eh? I guess six figures sounds like a lot from the point of
view of the kind of wanker who would write this.
This is what I did. And I told no one. All I know is there is a kid
whose advice I took credit for and he is the key factor for my
success in life.
I live in a $500k condo in Mountain View. Wife, 2 kids, and a Lexus
(2009 Hybrid, Italian leather seats, TV in backseat for the kids).
$500k isn't much house in a big city in California (although it was
even less a couple years ago).
I just wanted to let you know that the security tips helped. I feel
pretty guilty for flat out taking credit for all his work though. I
just had to get it off my chest.
Thank you so much, if you read this list. You've touched my life.
