No a modem - 0.3k I guess you could call it (as opposed to 56k) :p

Just used to trawl BBS's about phreaking and "dangerous information" and occult and conspiracy and social engineering and mind-control techniques etc.  Back then you had to be subscribed to certain hard-to-find publications or know where to find the subversive sections of alternative bookstores to find all that stuff.  Stopped being interesting once it was easy to find.

was the show 'saved by the bell' ?
if it was, you will have to answer why you needed to know that

as for early internet, newsgroups were key to getting 'the good stuff' early on
when I first got dialup to the internet, as opposed to bbs's, there werent many isp's and they just had a room with actual modems each plugged into a telephone line which you connected to, I went with a place callde dedset and you had to go into their store to sign up and pay the bill, and they would give you a tour of their facilities

I had a 300 baud in 93 or 94 - wasn't much to see and even then I didn't have the patience.

I remember the 300 baud modem, dialling up to BBS’s around town. At that speed you could see the text on screen line by line as it downloaded.

I can remember Veronica and Gopher but I can't quite recall what they did.

Where do you get kitchen fluoros from?

I've been without light in the kitchen for a few months now - not a problem really as I seldom use it - but would kinda like it.
