Prehistory.. Didn't know I was older than that! ;) When I started, we had to connect via ftp using the same credentials than your dialup! And you access website using /~username/.. Hehe! Some had access to cgi-bin where you put executable (chmod 755), usually written in Perl!

Yes it's all relative :-) I remember bringing a Hayes moden home some day in 94-5 and having to move my computer to the kitchen because my room didn't have a phone jack.
