It's great in helping to track down old mates you've lost contact with, but sometimes not so good. I’ve just checked an old e-mail address I stopped using about 2 years ago, because it was just filling up with spam everyday, to find news an old friend died just before Christmas, from his partner, and inviting me to the funeral. These two guys had been together for over 30 years and were very close friends with me and my ex-g/f for about 6 years, before me & her broke-up and these two guys moved away and I lost contact with them due to slackness on both sides. I’ve been regretting the last year or so that we lost contact and tried to track them down, but no luck, and now this has hit me from out of the blue – gutted. Don’t you just hate it when crap like this happens?
