Who Was Your First?

After sitting here reading the latest Poll regarding favorite search engine, husband of mine and I started to reminisce about our very first computer, and who the provider was, as well as the search engine. He was in college. It was 1985. Neither of us remember the "Internet" back then, but there were "Bulletin Boards" we would frequent. We remember the 8" floppys! Our connection then was dial-up. We think it was with Prodigy, then we switched to CompuServe. We can recall when the 5 1/4" mini floppy disks came out....we thought, "whoa..technology is really something!"

Who was your first provider? What do you remember out it?

 I had a Commadore 64...haha!! I was a kid back then!  Then my mom bought a pc when I was about 13 that ran DOS..it was so slow but back then it was smokin'!  I also had an Apple for a second. Eventually about '97, my boyfriend at the time, convinced me to buy a computer from his friend's store.  It was custom made and built to my specifications...and cost me $1200, (that same computer would probably cost $100 now!)  And it had a 36k modem!!  Remember the first Windows?!  I started out using Netscape for a browser and ICQ was huge back then.  We used to talk of T1 connections, and cable modems like they were unattainable...ahh, those were the days!!

 

..time to eat the donuts....

Earthlink was my first dial up provider sometime around 1992.  Oh it was so slow!

The first one I can remember was AOL. I know we had internet before that, but I was too young to really care.
