I started modemming with 1200/2400/9600bps
I ever login to sia bbs.
I started using internet since 1st browser was available.
I have no idea what you are talking about...
This thread brings back great memories! Made quite a number of friends during the era of BBS :-) Still remember coming back from school, switching on the PC and the autoexec would straight away load TELIX, some hotkeys later, was logged into either Cynosure or SIA BBS. Started with a 2400, then to a 19200 and finally a USR 28800 (this was like after 2 yrs).
Anybody used Cynosure around here?
At least you got to play games on Teleview..
My dad made me do those stupid assignment things on Teleview... SmartCAP anyone?
On the bright side, I got to play Raptor, Wolfenstein etc. at my own leisure.. Learnt enough dos commands to make my own boot diskettes etc to play games.
I remember every BBS using remoteaccess would ask you to press esc twice to log in. What was the reason for that?
i was from the teleview times, i think i was 14 yr old
Not so much as an OT, but it is so easy to take things for granted.....
OK, an old man speaking you say.
Maybe so (I remember working on valve B&W tv sets ).
What brings me to mention this is,
I just helped one of Coral's (my best friend) daughters setup Skype with Video and Audio whilst on the phone.
The 2 of them (mother and daughter ... seperated by a few hundred of miles) were in awe to be able to see and speak to each other.
It was a 10 minute conversation over the phone to Corals daughter .... nothing special ...
The end result was priceless .... so much enjoyment and sharing of love for each other....
Yet all it took was 10 minutes to set up.
Life is so much easier for some yet rocket science to others.
What am I actually saying here..... Nothing really.
I don't think the universe should be up to speed ... or miss the boat.
Maybe that we should recognize that there are people out there that could benefit from our understandings.
Sorry for the OT..... this has happened 15min ago and has me thinking about it all.
Time, is an effortless construction :)
