Way long.

I used to dial in to my dad's shell account at the UWO and go on usenet and I remember reading jokes over gopher.

1989.

I used to use General Electric's thang, called GEnie.

Hehe yeah man I remember those days...

I used to use the "FreeNet" dialup service. It was slow, you couldn't browse the WWW (when it came out) but it was FREEE!

I :heart: gopher. I don't know how many hours I spent scouring gopher for random facts and information :smirk:

Oh yeah, I remember GEnie. I don't think I ever used it though.

It must have been like 1992 or so when I first got on the internet, but I know that before that I dialed in to Sierra's online community thingee where you could play online versions of their games.

Yeah it was around 91-92 when I got my first taste of the net, though I didn't become a regular user until early 1994 when I got a beta copy of Windows 95. No more fiddling with Trumpet Winsock :smirk:

hmm, but fidonet was my "first taste" of the internet. the first i heard the word "internet". it prompted me to go and find the source of the articles i studied. the source being the interconnected libraries known as the internet.

The internet...hmmm...I stuck with BBSes for a while just because it was free and I was a poor kid. I did email using Juno dial-up, haha. I think I finally got a steady internet connection about ten years ago. I did BBSing starting in the late 80s and ran a very popular one for a couple of years out of my basement using two 486 beasts and 4 CD Roms. I'm still old school, I am on a 33.6 connection because I live too far off the grid for DSL or anything. Respect! (for ultimate nerdom)

i honestly don't remmber but its something like 7-8 years
i remmber downloading songs at 1.5KBPS and that was FAST!

mirc and porn (naked photos... none of that free downloadable clips)
then came ICQ
and then it was cannabis.com boards
kazaa
and joint.co.il boards
the holy donky and soulseek
and now it's the shroomery

i wonder how would one go about writing the history of the internet...
