    I started on the internet in 1989. Reading rec.arts.movies where Back to the Future 2 was the big thing being discussed. No graphics or web browser back then.

    Damn. Netscape and Alta Vista. Now I feel old. I remember how excited I was when I bought a 56K modem and was going to run soooo much faster than my 33K

    I remember the chat rooms back before the spambots took over. It was really cool to say the word spam.

    I remember running up my parents phone bill because the number used to connect to the internet with long distance from where I lived. It was probably around three or four hundred dollars.

    I remember my school charged $2 for a hard disk. I was told it was "cutting age technology".
