I'm in.  I'll take 5-year non-obsolescence all day long w/o even  
breaking a sweat, and 10-year if the price is right.  All bets are  
off for 20-year and beyond.  With an appropriate definition for "e- 
mail" of course.  I prefer to denominate such prop bets in Tongan  
pa'anga (TOP) if you please, though if pressed will also accept  
Polish zlotych (PLN) or Tuvalu dollars (TVD).  Palladium dollar- 
equivalents (USD) by weight also accepted.
