Where it all started..

I was 6 years old, dad had just bought a Mac and we got a blazing fast
1200 baud modem and got hooked up with Compuserve. I was going through
downsizing my “stuff” and came upon this old modem and the original
Compuserve manual. It’s laughable looking back at it now. It was
$15.00/hr to connect during prime time!! And that was for 1200 baud. If
you had 9600 you were shelling out $47.50 an hour! Now for less than
$50 a month I can get online at 6mbps. Plus it was $4 exta a week for
64,000 characters over your limit of 128,000 characters of online
storage. Wow. This probably qualifies as the first time I got online,
as the bbs days were 8 years later. I have faint memories of playing
games and wasting mom and dad’s money for hours on end. Hehe

    So this is where we went wrong as parents.
    Don’t forget, the original Mac is in the basement. . . waiting for you.
