    I remember being on a BBS and this chick was all like I KNOW YOU AND I GO TO YOUR HIGH SCHOOL and I was all like WUT and then she approached me at school a couple days later and she was fat as fuck!

    I remember being on a BBS and I had to maintain my ratio so I would upload programs and stuff so I could download 256 color gif files of boobs and I would whack off.

    I used to spend days downloading games in IRC through a UNIX shell.
    Took me a week to download Quake alpha 3.

    Sometimes depending on if I didn't know them.
    A friend of mine figured out how to make my pc speaker beep and would wake me up in the middle of the night.
