No, I'm not asking about your sexual meetings with strangers via chat you dirty kinky minds
When was the first time you actually had access to internet? I remember it was in 1995 when Internet was virtually unknown in Spain and I came across with this computer in Barcelona Uni (miracoulosly available) under a big sign saying: 'Internet: connect with the world! maximum 15 minutes' and stayed there chatting with a Canadian guy absolutely amazed (btw I had to keep pushing the refresh botton non stop LOL)
Although I had to wait until 1999 to get internet internet at home when prices got reasonable...
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
For me, It was in 1998or99, the price was high as I sayed in Hingis and Anna K chatsrooms too long Later it don't matter how long I stayed so now I stay here in the forums and other forums again too many hours...
Can someone remember when did AnnaK play against Graf in Geneva Exo Dec 1st 1998 or 99 it was my first Christmas online.

The first thing I did was type in tennis on the search engine and the board came up. That’s why I never believe those lying bastards who say ‘I never knew this place existed (you know the ones) though I’ve been online for FIVE years.
1996, I think. Maybe 1995 with AOL 3.something. My friend had it, and we used to fuck with all the guys on there.
We got WOW! at home in early 1996, but it closed down in 1997. Got AOL right after that.
....This is fucked up, fucked up....
This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.
You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me
I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
Deffo got it when I joined secondary school so that would be '95...but I think we got dial up at home around the same time cos we got it with a deal with cable tv or something. Broadband (finally!) about 2 years ago and I can't remember life before the internet, what the hell did I do with all that spare time?!
In 1998, I was in 7th grade, we got it in school. I remember the movie Godzilla was about to come out about that time, and we sat there for 2 hours waiting for the new Godzilla's roar .wav file to finish downloading.
