Monday 6/12

How did you get started using computers? When did you first get "online". Do you predate the Internet being available to the public or was it always here for you?

My first experience with computers was WAY back in eight grade. Our school got a new lab of 25 Commodore 64! I learned to program in BASIC and thought it was the coolest thing ever....My beginnings as a geek grrl.....

I have been on internet for a long long time.....I remember using free-net back in 92 on my university account. As far as personal usage, I got online with AOL..back in 1995, when you got 6 hours for 20.00 a month and 4.95 for each additional hour. I had 80 and 90 bills sometimes due to that mess....but I hung around with AOHELL until they went to unlimited....I think my first online session after that was something like 15 hours.....

Commodore 64 was my first one but I was married with 2 kids then. Glad you became a "geek" like us!

I had forgotten that AOL had time limits. I remember running over a few times myself now that I think about it,
