    Original smiley recovered

    Yes its true, the original bboard thread that gave birth to the much loved smiley has been discovered on a back-up tape from September 16, 1982 at CMU CS. after years of obscurity, the smiley can now be preserved for posterity in all its original glory,

    To gaze upon its magnificence go here:

    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”

    First time I saw a smiley was back in 1990, on one of those dial-in BBS. There was this contest about who could make the funniest smiley. There were lots of suggestions, and I remember one of them:

    £:-) - Smiley with a new hair-cut.
