Re: When was your first time using the Internet?

I typed my answer here, hit the "Preview" button, and that turned out to be the exact moment the old forum went down! So... my first time was at the end of August or beginning of September 1996. I had just bought my first ever computer and was super excited. I couldn't wait to get online, ...

Could be, though the Internet Archive did manage to grab a screen capture on February 21, 2003. Perhaps it was still available to some? Or perhaps the site went unavailable once in a while, or for a short time, but I happened to check during that time. It would made it the right precursor of this s...

Great finding, Shiyonasan! :w00t: IIRC, I first saw this website in the fall of 1998. I have no recollection of that early forum, although I perfectly remember this old forum style - that is what most forums looked like back then. I'm quite sure I never posted in that one.

Thanks for the news, Shiyonasan. Strange name indeed. :eek: But Yahoo is a widely recognized brand name! Altaba sounds like a medication. "Ask your doctor about Altaba! Side effects may include dizziness, vomiting, and spontaneous combustion." :lol: More importantly, will all those yahoo email accou...

Wow, Earthshine! I recall once going at a restaurant as a member of a large group (around 12) at lunchtime, and somehow our meal orders got completely forgotten! But we never encountered such a bad attitude, it seemed like a genuine mistake. Good thing you didn't eat anything!

It's one of MC Escher's most famous drawings. Thank you so much for the reference!

Funny videos, 2017 edition

Some of you may have seen it, but in case you haven't yet, this is a must see... I laughed to the point of crying when I saw it first... and I still found it as funny as I watched it to post here.
