Ah,
The sound of dial up when it finally stooped and connected. Warez without the threat of being found. Not having to wade through the "ad sites" that now replace the results in searching. Various chatrooms(a/s/l checks every few mins ), as social networking. Not having to type in a security code or home phone/cell to post somewhere/access e-mail.

via '96/'97+


BBS pre that time that family had introduced me to.

Hahahaha a/s/l checks!! I remember when I first saw that, over at a friends house who had AOL, I had no idea what it meant and someone typed it out for me. We had Erol's internet at my house, spent hours on Sk8Chat, built my own Angelfire webpage, first Hotmail address, being able to search for anything and get a legit find, getting caught by my parents for looking up adult videos because I had no idea that there was a such thing as a 'history' on the browser... Ahh the old days of the internet.

Crazy to think that the kids born nowadays won't be able to phathom not having an internet... We used to ride bikes, play in the woods, and drink from the hose when I was a kid.. And I'm only 28!


HAHahahaha A/S/L!! I totally forgot that!! Ok, folks. Just for the good days.... 28/F/Utah!!
aw, the memories

A strange game. The only winning move is not to troll.
How about a nice game of chess?

MY earliest memories are using a DEC Vax 11/780
And live chatting with a our other DOD sites, and a few colleges.In about 1984..
From home I had a DEC terminal with a 300 baud acoustic coupled modem.
all monochrome green (or some amber)
We could also send email.
The Vax was a giant machine, that hissed like a viper as the Washtub sized disk drive worked to provide Virtual memory.
It was actually kind of boring. LOL
