Best Answer

These were the days before the web. Hell, these were the days before Windows ...

You only really had Internet access via UNIX or VAX minicomputers that you had to telnet into. I went to a large research university, so all the students had access. We also had "real" e-mail, but I couldn't e-mail most of my high school friends, since not all college students had Internet access.

I can easily get all nostalgic about those days.... :)

Best Answer

nostalgic yeah like me programming in GWBasic with math expressions , kind of miss that , my best system was the 386 with Dos 6.22 and Norton commander , loved that stuff

Best Answer

I wasn't into programming back then. One of the cool things about the Internet in the early 1990s was an almost complete lack of security. I found so much cool stuff just poking around. The AppleTalk network at my college? None of the professors with Apples had any security... I had so much free software. All sorts of crazy stuff on FTP servers everywhere.
