I remember the good old days of dial up....I was an early adopter of the internet. 

My first internet experience was with Compuserve.....I paid $50.00 for the software, (probably around 1988), and was thrilled if a website picture loaded within 3 minutes. 

Of course I didn't have a local dialup at that time so I was also paying long distance charges while waiting for that photo to load.

I really feel that I could be right at home in a cabin in the woods, living off of the land but I would still want the internet. I use it a minimum of 50 times a day for research on various hobbies and interests.

I hear you.  You where a pioneer.  Did you have the brick phone?

Fluid.....no brick phone but I was definitely in the early days of computers.

My first was an Apple II that used 5-1/2" floppies.

I then moved on to an IBM 8088 which made me the envy of nearly everyone that knew what a computer was. I mean come on....I had 64K of RAM. Who wouldn't have been envious of THAT? 

I remember sitting around dreaming of one day owning a computer that had 640K of RAM. I figured that once I got my "dream machine" I would never have any need to buy another computer.  :D

 

Man, times have sure changed over the last 25 - 30 years.
