Ambitwistor: Valiente: I was there and don't miss it at all, actually. Nostalgia is the cancer of memory.

I'm nostalgic for BBSes and Usenet; in both cases, I think some things were lost in the transition to the modern Web.  I'm not nostalgic for the early Web; it's been superseded.

Ahhhh, Usenet.  Fark before FARK came into being.

Phhhht. Amateurs.

I was using Q-Link for the Commodore 128 and PC Pursuit back in 1988!

When the text of BBS messages were scrolling by faster than you could read them, you knew you were going at warp speed.

Ahhh, yes. The days when you would download a picture, and first her hair would appear, and then her forehead, and you would go make a sandwich and by the time you got back her eyes would be on the screen. Line by line your screen would fill up, and your anticipation would build up, until finally, GODAMMIT SHE'S GOT A PENIS! WHAT THE fark IS THIS BULLshiat?

Getting a kick out of this because I was a cameraman on that show.   It was the biggest computer show on television at the time, seen all over the world on PBS and other outlets.   Back when people got their computer information from that thar teevee thing.
