Fairly new to this internet thingy 6-7 years now, took me a week to figure out how to turn computer on(in between taste testing beer that is)
5th grade but my brother knows how to use one since he was like 5
I never "learned" how. I just got on, and knew. Intuitive, instinctive, whatever you want to call it.
some time in the mid to late 1980's '86 I think, I accessed the internet with Prodigy at 1200 baud (dial up modem)
I learned when I was 28 - when I got my first computer.<br />
Get this - When I was in high school, we were taught the punch card system in "computer class". When I was a senior, the school bought 5 Commodore PET computers (saved files on a cassette tape).
Let’s see….when was the internet invented? Actually I used the precursor when the internet was used for the military only. Boy do I feel old.
Around 1995, so 9 years old. My brother-in-law had AOL dial-up xD. I remember seeing a page for pizza hut and being amazed and empowered that I could just order a pizza that way. Now my wallet and my fat arse regret it lol.
About 13, logging on with dial up @28.8k with an old P75 ibm machine back in '83. Basically just chat rooms, some basic news and libraries.
Not nearly young enough! My nieces and nephews know so much more than I do. Duh. lol
Aww Thanks. :-)
Shall we become friends? I'd like to. :-)
I had access to a computer lab where I worked it, I learned to surf the internet there when I was 42. The lab technician helped me get a password and ID and then showed me (and my friends) how to log-in, and the rest was self-taught. I used the lab at almost every lunch break until the end of the school year and then bought a WebTV for home use, and used that till I got my first real computer a couple years later.
Computers first made their way into my school when I was in 11th grade, and it was all of that green screen dos prompt crap, but to actually use the internet, it wasn't until I was probably thirty-ish that I gave it a proper whirl.
:) Glad to be of service!
Almost 55 years old.
Thank you; still learning.
When we got it at school. I was about 11.
I learned when I was about 7.
The mid 90s I think it was, around the age of of 13. Yeah those pagers too lol, I had one in middle school and thought I was the coolest.
At a guess 27. Super slow dial-up was all that was available to home users here at the time and now I find it hard to believe I ever had the patience to wait that long for everything to load up.
