Default Re: When you dared to venture to "The Net"!

1979. I had a class on database searching through Syracuse University. They had two strapping undergrads haul in the "portable" computer and hoist it up on a sturdy desk, wire it up, and we then dialed up UC Berkley using an acoustic coupler and modem to search through their databases using ftp (file transfer protocol.) Man, do I feel like I went to school with Fred Flintstone!
