When downloading porn took *hours*...

One more thing I found while digging through the archives back on January 10th was this jewel. CompuServe first took me onto the Internet in late 1995 or early 1996. If I remember correctly, I upgraded my modem to 14.4 so I could fly on the World Wide Web, which most people were still eagerly calling the "Information Superhighway." The romance ended soon enough and I bailed in favor of AOL. I'm not sure I would have believed you if you told me then that I would have the Internet on my telephone today.

My very first Internet experience was CompuServe, where I was something like 31526,9834@compuserve.com... Yeah, giving someone nine digits as your e-mail address was easy for them to remember.
