First off, this was 1998 when we were just four guys interested in the 
internet.  It wasn't a big deal yet.  We had maybe five clients for a 
year.  Getting in any new work at the time was a big deal.

Second, it's always interesting to me that something good happens after 
something bad and people say "Big Deal" or "that was a lucky coincidence," 
and just brush it aside like it was nothing.  I choose to believe that 
there's more behind it.

It comes down to this (as this thread is winding down now): you can choose 
to say we're all here and that everything we do is completely by chance or 
that this is all a conscious effort by a higher power who, despite our 
stupidity and fraility as humans, hasn't allowed us to completely destroy 
the planet.
