The internet as we know it is only 15 years old but the story behind it and how it all started goes a bit longer back than that, around the end of the 70's to early 80`s for military use. I remember when we first got the internet at our house and my parents set a time zone on my surfing because it was too expensive back then. I was only allowed to surf between 1 in the afternoon until about 8 in the evening and then it automatically went offline. It got me quite frustrated but today things are different, thank god. Now I enjoy the luxury of high speed broadband (damn, hated dial-up and sites taking forever to load) and at a very cheap price too so I can surf 24/7 without anyone complaining at all. The internet rocks, I am an addict and not ashamed to admit it.
