We've had a computer since the mid-80s but I didn't start using the internet until 1996. I've been addicted ever since.

Just the basics:
Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

Over the summer of 1988 I took a computer programming course to fulfill a science requirement at college. Other than word processing, I had never really played around on a computer at all, so this was a very basic course. My prof told us about this thing called email and gave us all email accts and said we could turn in our assignments that way. I never did understand what on earth he was talking about. I was really baffled, but never bothered to pursue it (well, it was summer, after all!). It just made no sense to me.

It wasn't too many years later till the internet and email started really taking off, and I know by 96 I was checking out websites, by 97 dh and I were married and hooked up via prodigy. I'll never forget us trying to figure it all out together. lol. very funny now that I look back at it. by 98 I found the disboards.

My grandfather got us a TRS-80 computer with a Cassette Tape drive, in the early '80s and I was instantly hooked.

Finding my way onto the information super highway? Well that was done using my good old 9600 baud modem back in 1991-1992 (freshman year in High School) to connect to local BBS's (and telnet into larger, national, ones) to use their forums & play "door" games (Trade Wars!).

Those were the days.
