Today is the celebrated anniversary of the origin of MP3s. Funny enough, the whole thing started with the following email from Juergen Zeller:

Reference: Endings for Layer3: mp3
Hello,_according to the overwhelming opinion of all asking: the ending for ISO MPEG audio Layer 3 is mp3. i.e. we should for coming www sides, Shareware,_Demos, etc. on it respect that no more bit endings rausgehen. It has a reason, believes me : -) Juergen Zeller
Thank you, Juergen!
