You did read that wrong or I didnt give you enough information. and Relax ... I explained that it isnt a perfect corelation but can be useful in
making snap judgements. I even attached a comic. People who have spent a lot of time with computers and the internet specifically tend to move
through different emails. Not all but it is a tendency.
Going totally off topic here i would just like to say i agree... Hotmail account does almost always automatically show lack of professionalism.
before anyone (as already occured when discussing this) attacks me for my IT situation i have an IT comapny, i grew up as Legacy IT as my Father owned
a nationwide IT company, i worked for one of the biggest Mac IT COmpanies in the UK after that for a while and i also work daily at a contract for a
Multi national Computer hardware manufacturer as there IT support.
If you want to come accross proffesional people (in IT) expect you to usually not be providing either and Gmail or Hotmail account but an account
which holds a domain name - Gonzo@mycompaniesname.com
sadly if you send out an email from a hotmail account or Gmail account or Yahoo account people automatically judge the proffesionalism of your company
(especially when you can register a web domain froma company then set up webmail for that domain in your name)
now in this case the relativley well known writer on the internet has published a hotmail account it looks both dated and childish when for a tiny fee
a proffesional email addy can be achieved.
So yeah off topic i just like to say hotmail accounts dont stand up to much and are overly judged by many businesses IT proffesionals and Internet
Also - this is also the case if you send emails with certain fonts and colour scheme's....
On topic.. well as someone already said i doubt the 188 day prophecy will come true, i would love it too, it means we could hopefully predict other
dangerous earthquakes and in theory start looking for signs of these thing about to happen and maybe save lives... but i think we will find another
dead theory in two days.
