    If not for on line trading and porn, the internet would have floundered in the basements of geeks for decades......

    Re: Confused about the internet, Circa 1994

    I was a freshman in high school in 94 and the funny thing is I remember feeling the same way when we first started using the internet and email that year in some classes.

    Also that video reminded me of just how much I hated Bryant Gumbel.

    17 years later and Katie Couric is still just as clueless...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Hah, I remember the internet before browsers. Gopher, and email were about the only apps you could use. I still have my first email printed out from 1991.
