Fun Fact: Colin Powell used a AOL email server when he was SecState. It even got hacked.

Trump should hire this kid. He could find Hillary's lost emails!!!

Is this the thing where the kid figured out the user name and then got in by guessing '12345' or 'password'  or some other obvious combination that an idiot might put on his luggage/burner hotmail account?

Heh, I had a 2400 baud modem that could get on the University BBS and a MUD though the latter was laggy.  I doubt it could support anything graphical..

My first modem was a 300 baud for my Commodore 64. When I upgraded to a 1200, I was amazed by the raw speed I now had under my control. I could download a picture of boobs in like only 15 minutes!
