    Way back in the day the store`s inventory used to be entirely in the back room. You`d give your list to the clerk and he`s grab the items for you and then ring you up.

    @collegebound
    the internet has been around long then you know

    Research into packet switching started in the early 1960s and packet switched networks such as Mark I at NPL in the UK, ARPANET, CYCLADES, Merit Network, Tymnet, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of protocols. The ARPANET in particular led to the development of protocols for internetworking, where multiple separate networks could be joined together into a network of networks thanks to the work of British scientist Donald Davies whose ground-breaking work on Packet Switching was essential to the system.
