And you were done before it got more than a few lines after that.

9600 was but a dream for me when I started with bulletain boards and LISTSERVS, as an early teenager I could not afford a V.90, but was very happy the day I added an off brand 56K to my old 4086, (which I was VERY proud of at the time with it's 8 mbs of video memory and 32 mb RAM).

LOL, definately way over used. I try not to get too bent out of shape about stuff like that but deep down it bugs me. It bugs me because I feel like, "hey I knew what that meant first", and the other people at that time who knew, I shared an odd bond with. These are the same people that knew how to use html tags in chat to change colors or fonts before java ruled, the same people that know DOS commands and remember how exciting it was to finally beat Myst, and then rush out to buy a copy of Riven. Back then I was ashamed to be a computer nerd, outside of playing sports in school I didn't have a lot of freinds. Now it's something I'm proud of.

Anyone remember modems with acoustic couplers? The handset snapped into the modem.

Had a Tandy TRS80 With a cassette tape storage system. Probably maxed out at about 1k RAM. I'm too old to remember exactly.

I hate LOL with a passion I can't convey.

I'm trying to wean off of the LOL for the haha, *snicker*, and *chuckle*. A lot of people do it compulsively and it is irritating. BTW I was chatting and meeting people on a BBS called Redwood Freenet that was hosted by our local library on a Mac Plus and a 14.4kbs modem in 1992, so I have the right pedigree, but I didn't see ANYONE using these types of acronyms. And the games that were available were running on ANSI! So cool at the time!

My first computer was a Tandy, probably about that same model. Had no CD-ROM or speakers obviously. I cannot remember the model though.

I remember when 28,8 was the schit. We didn't get a computer until I was in high school so I missed out on the dark ages and came in during the industrial revolution. Luckily we're hoarders, so I used all those old parts to make stir plates

I've got to admit, I miss that modem squawk.
