I sent Ms. Byun an e-mail. This was her reply.

Then I decided to be a smartass, and thus replied without using the ‘h’, ’s’, or ‘o’ keys.

(This message is missing characters because you used them up in the last e-mail.)
As one can guess, she called me shortly after to inquire as to Gmail’s newfound character limit and to ask me how Gmail calculates it. There were many long pauses in the phone conversation. I asked her to reply to my e-mail to make it formal.
really? gmail knows how many letters i use up? how do they kno that?
how many am i allowed to use???
I keep friends like these around to make me feel smart.
