I found a happy little email in my inbox this morning. It was a note from Handango informing me that my application to become a Handango Developer partner has been approved.  Woohoo!

Ya, you know, that application I submitted more than THREE YEARS AGO when I was at Borland experimenting with writing .NET CF apps for my smartphone with Delphi. At first I thought this confirmation email was evidence that somebody was trying to create a fake Handango account (but why would they use my real email address?), but upon closer examination of the account contact info, it’s all mine.  My previous home address (I moved three years ago), previous phone number, previous employer, the whole previous nine yards.  I immediately changed my previous password, just in case.

Thanks for letting me in, Handango! Look for a new smartphone app from me in, say, 2011.
