A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE INTERNET

The Internet is a big part of our daily lives. But many of us aren't very familiar with the history of the net. This link might help educate us as to how it all began.

Hope you enjoy reading about this as much as I did.

I started on the Internet with a 14400 modem that crawled along slowly. When I went up to a 33600 I thought, boy this is great and I then got a 56K. Man that was smokin.

Learned about IRC and thought WOW. Had a blast, made some great frineds, one of whom I still talk to occassionaly. One who I lost in 9-11 and others that are not forgotten and missed.


Anybody else remember Dal Net and Pirch or Mirc chat programs?

When did you come online? I arrived on the Internet sometime in 1995 or so.
