    Now this does bring back memories......... Logging into the university conection to telnet Rutgers and a few other BBS's on the internet, MUDS, and I remember the days when I helped administer a node for FidoNet for the state of Montana. I remember going from 1200 Baud to 9600 Baud and thinking I was almost as fast as conected to the server Now I look at 56k dialup and groan when I have to use it......


    And I will have to give extra Old Folks points if you know all of the references in that one.

    MUDS....the true MMORPGs of their day. And I remember being "online" on a commodore 64 with a 300 baud modem. Then stepping up to 1200 and thinking it was hot stuff.

    Ah, Commodore 64's and TI99's. Those were the days!
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I still have both my Commodore 64 and my Commodore 128 - with all peripherals. Sheesh! I remember spending 15 minutes loading a simple word processing program from the cassette deck. LOL!

    Double Sheesh! The Commodore 128 had 128 kilobytes of RAM. The computer I just finished building has 8 GIGABYTES of RAM! LOL!

    Default Oh yeah?

    At the risk of appearing to "top" everyone's story.........One of the first jobs out of school for me was working in a quality control lab of a paper mill. During the process of testing pulp, of course, calculations had to made. Device of choice? Slide rule.

    Being from Waldo County we were always at a disadvantage when it came to math . . . due to all of the hay bailing "incidents" . . . well I should say some of us were at a disadvantage . . . there were some folks who had a distinct advantage when it came to doing math since they had extra toes and fingers . . . a benefit I guess from genetic inbreeding. And yes, I am kidding and poking fun at my roots.
