    I chose to put this in "UP TO THE MINUTE", because it's about keeping up with advancements.

    Back then, did we ever really think ordinary people would have access to the technology we now take for granted?

    LOL! Love it! I got my 1st computer in 1983(?). I've been on the 'WWW' since 1993. One of my co-workers said, 'why do we need this INTERNET?'.

    How about that… thanks for sharing noZ!

    The internet didn't become a real thing to me until my college years in the early 90's. I goes you could say I was a late bloomer. lol But even then, I didn't realize the kind of impact it would have on the future. Now, I couldn't fathom my world without it…

    I'd have loved to have had the WWW when I was young, but still didn't get a computer until 1998-99.

    :eek:nline: I bought my first computer in 1995. It was a Compaq Presario and it was really something. I was on AOL dial up and thought that was fast, lol! Now we are spoiled!

    LOL! Reminds me when I took a MS-Dos class circa 1983!

    Funny clip from Almost Famous about a Mojo (Fax machine) I graduated HS in 1974 so I really got a kick out of it!
