    I used to make websites that scammed people into giving me their Neopets login info. I was mega rich until Neopets tracked me down and shut down my account [​IMG]

    Telnet and Gopher. How could I forget? Also, shell accounts you telnet'ed into.

    Or remember those sort of hobbiest/hippy city BBSs? There was a network of them but I can't remember what the name was.

    It's funny to think how kids nowadays won't have a clue what the "You've got mail" sound is from.

    Or what dial up sounds like. I wonder if my kids will even recognize references to phones with wires attached to them. It's a different world.

    One of my fondest memories was gaining access to a linux box on a cablemodem alpha test. This was in the days of like 14.4 speeds. I used to pingflood the shit out of people on IRC. Would also spoof ident and takeover chans with ease.
