    And this was in 1995? For some reason it looks like 1987.

    OMG I remember when `cyber` was the in word of the day! And showing my age here, but in 1985 when I first connected to a BBS, it was on a 300 baud modem that was strictly text mode only - AND took 5 minutes to get a page of it.

    Whatever Billy Corgan. You`re a sellout and an as*hole.

    It`s so ducked up to look back at what was being said about internet back then. I was a senior in high school with my aol account on a computer that didn`t even have enough computing power to render a web page. I just chatted and emailed. My external 14.4k 2400 baud ought as well have been a sippy straw trying to drink up lake michigan.
