    If there's a Rock and Roll heaven, you know they have a hell of a band.

    Your contract only gave you a certain amount of time on the internet and if you didn't keep track, you got a BIG surprise on your next statement.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    My then husband trying to explain to me what email was. I just simply could not fathom such a thing!!!

    It didn't help that I thought he was saying "emu" for a while I I just wasn't making the connection between "electronic" and "emu." DOH!!!
    Everything is always OK in the end. If it's not, then it's not the end!

    Command line discussions -- so easy, so nerdy . 1200 baud modems. And the game with a gorilla tossing bananas over NYC buildings.

    At work in the early '90s. I had to learn to use the internet and the graphical user interface (GUI) around the same time. The internet I could deal with, but after years of keyboard-only I thought the "mouse" was absolutely the stupidest idea ever concieved. I still use a lot of keystroke commands where I can.

    Friends lived out in the country, paid 5 cents per minute for internet access. They showed me thr area's Most Wanted criminals. I forgot what else. This was back in the early 90's or maybe earlier. He was a professor of computer science at UCONN.

    I finally got a service provider in my neck of the woods. Otherwise, I would have had to pay long distance phone charges. I clicked "Connect to Internet". The phone rang, then lots of beeping noises, and Silence. I was actually on the Internet. I then called my girlfriend and told her that I was on the internet. OOOOH!!!!But I didn't know what to do. I didn't even have a home page yet.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
