Yes, I do still remember DOS BBS and still play around with ASCII art to this day when I get bored.
You had a high speed modem - mine was 2400bps!
My first 'puter was and still is an MITS Altair 8800 kit that I built.
I was using the Internet before it became the Internet - ARPANET, whew, am I dating myself - I'm older than dirt!
In fact, I'm older than GATES!
In fact I have been using Windows since Win 1.0...MS DOS 1.0 Netscape 1.0, Novell Netware 1.0, Banyan Vines 1.0, Lotus Notes 1.0, Internet Explorer 1.0, MS Office 1.0, Word Perfect 1.0.
But I have graduated to the latest and greatest of all of these platforms and many many more, but is is interesting to see how far technology has progressed in so short of a time!
My my, gosh, how time flies...!
