|I love the sound, but I hated it when I was trying to sneak onto the web without my parents noticing. It's KIND OF a dead giveaway.|
"Are you going online down there?!"
"Uh, No! I'm- er... just pining! That's right!"
Ah, the grand old days of anti-Barney cults and searching Altavista for Gamez. Back in a time when the 25 meg demo of the Loderunner remake took almost a full day to download. (My parents weren't very happy about that.)
|I remember.... we used to have a dial-up that took up the telephone (and I'm only 14 too), listening to what my dad called "The computers are talking to each other", and then getting on.|
It was sort of just a play-thing that I didn't really get until we got DSL.
When we got DSL, we no longer had to worry about connecting.... it was always connected, and then we had a network for all the computers in the house.... but the damn thing kept crashing every 5 minutes so it was nearly useless for games.
Only recently.... in fact a fortnight ago that we got cable for both the TV (bleh) and the Internet (WOOT).
Good times.... good times.... well actually bad times compared to today but nonetheless....

|I was one of the influx of AOL users that ruined the internet back in 1995...we got a free trial on a floppy disk (this was before they gave out all those free CDs) and we were hooked. 14.4 kbps...I remember when we upgraded to 28.8k, nd I thought that was the greatest, but back then AOL charged per hour and so I was never allowed to dowload anything big...|
And I'm only 17.
|there's science to be done!|

|Oh shit! The internet is ruined! Curse you evil 1995 users!|

|Wait, you were five when you ruined the internet? Wow.|

|I was six, actually. I didn't mean to suggest that it was me, personally, that ruined the Internet, though. I intended it as "I was one of the AOL users, of whom some others are considered to have ruined the Internet."|

|When I was six, I could hardly even write.|

|I remember something like that, Tom. My dad got AOL and I would get on it when I went to his house. |
I only really got on it for any length of time a couple times, though, I believe. It was a bit later, though. Maybe '97?
