    Things were a lot different in 2004, people who could log on and post on message boards were still scarce at the time.

    Are there any screen shots or cached version of the site somewhere? I'd love to see what he was taking shit for around that time.

    The only experimental data pulled from the bbs was that listeners weren't as stupid as Howard thought they were.

    In 2004, many computers lacked what we now call a "screen" and the keyboards were missing number keys.

    It was a long time ago, but some of us old-timers remember having to get up and walk over to the computer to change web sites.
