Smiley 25 Years - zlythern

I'm a heavy user of smiley :D and you know what ? Smiley is 25 Years Old Now :D

Scott E. Fahlman Fahlman posted the emoticon in a message to an online electronic bulletin board at 11:44 a.m. on Sept. 19, 1982, during a discussion about the limits of online humor and how to denote comments meant to be taken lightly.

"I propose the following character sequence for joke markers: :-)," wrote Fahlman. "Read it sideways."

Who would've thought that it began with some "joke marker" ? ;)

Happy Birthday to the 25 Years Old Smiley :D
