Looks like 2 real assholes
I still remember the early days of the internet, or at least early days of it's popularity. When local news channels first started up their own websites. Everyone would read the web addresses and struggle thru saying "Visit us at H - T -T -P, COLON, is that a slash or back slash? Okay. I'm being told it's TWO BACKSLASHES, then W -W- W-, followed by a period, no spaces so far..."
It would take ten minutes for them to get it out.
Using a computer for non-masturbatory purposes is fucking stupid.
You're a huge fag.
Sounds like me with the wife's bra
When showing off the latest technology make sure you use a rotary phone.
Like two cavemen discovering fire and celebrated by smearing feces all over their faces.
Old systems were so much fun to work on, All of the video,sound cards etc were independent of the mainboard. If one thing went bad you didnt have to replace the whole pc. :
that's some hi tech shit right there
geeks are geeks regardless of the decade.
the first files we sent over the net were porno, but there is no money in that so Darpa suggested we invent a way to send the files as a text message (uuencode) so the could announce the net makes communications easy.
thus we invented email to facilitate the sending of porn converted to text.
I miss those clicky clacky keyboards.
You can still get those. Gamers like em.
Dude, are you fucking serious with that AV? Change it now!!
that wasn't really an "email" or the "internet"
it was an online service like AOL but a very early one that was probably contained within it's own private network and not connected to the internet at all
i go back further than that and used a service called CompuServe (a decade before AOL bought them out) and before Prodigy and way before AOL came along
CompuServe had a chat system that they called "the CB simulator"
i can remember the first time i ever dialed directly into the real internet using a local network called Digex NJ (or something like that)
once dialed in there were no graphics, just text only and you needed to know Unix code to navigate around the internet to use things like email, FTP or the world wide web
all this thru a 150/300 baud acoustic modem (the kind you see in the movie War Games)
i was a late 70s early 80s computer kid
the Atari 2600 got boring real quick so i got me an Atari 800 with a modem, dot matrix printer and a bunch of other crap to go with it
