    Oh wow. Just take a look at some of those old Apple home pages. Geee They looked great at the time. But now I can see how the current layout is so much better.

    Nice. Bookmarked. The only problem is it doesn't go back far enough. My first Mac was the Mac Plus (1987): 4 MB of ram (came with 1, but added three more), a 9" BW screen. standard key board (no number pad), one (built in) 3.25 floppy (added another external floppy and a 20 MB HDD (1990)). Mac OS 6.2 (last one used with it was 7.5). That machine lasted seven years.

    20MB drive... lol... I remember my first x86 machine. Took a friend with me that worked for Epson and sold drives for a living. Ended up with one that had a 80MB drive. He told me I'd never be able to fill that up.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I was trying to watch some of the older videos and ads, and none of them worked because they required Quicktime 3 xD.

    Speaking of which, NPR's Science Friday replayed their 1993 program about something called the "Internet" and how it can be beneficial to our future.

    Science Friday Archives: Science Friday, 1993: The Future of the Internet

    It's an amazing listen because life was so different back then!
