The first webpage, which went live on 30 April 1993, has been recreated by researchers at CERN.

Website. Not an ad in site.

The world's smallest movie, which is quite simply amazing.

"I'm missing something here."

What you're missing is a degree of insight into the way that Aitchbee's mind works. Don't fight it - do what the rest of us do, and go with the flow.

Aitchbee hasn't answered yet as he's still waiting for the page to load.

I still use dial-up - not for the internet but for banking. My bank still has it's business banking via a dial-up connection.

It is surprising how many modems are still available.

The faster refreshes of this website [with broadband] will give me less 'thinking time' for my erudite posts - I knew there would be a down side :o]

That's a downside?

I still get the shivers thinking about "dial-up" loading time back in 1998 and looking at the page as a picture presented itself, I could make a cup of tea and nearly drink it and the thought of downloading a movie clip was some thing to dream about. A floppy was some thing to snigger at until you got a PC.

Now I get 40 meg, my TV is hooked up to the internet, I have other PC's and Laptops connected on wireless, a smart phone with more computing power than my first, second or even fifth PC.

If anybody can think of any thing else that has changed so much in such a short time I can't.

Quickbeam [and others] - as you know, I am overplaying the loss of dial-up and move to broadband. It'll be a whole knew experience [I good one, I hope] ... and BTW your link doesn't seem to work, but I can see an Edith Piaf toon comin' up, n'est ce pas?

I was lucky enough to be sent an evaluation BBC Beeb computer at work. Round about 1995-6 I opened an Argonet account and used the Voyager browser. Members were called Argonauts. I took part in an early forum which some may remember call the ZFC, The Zimmer Frame Club. My favorite port of call was alt.rec.competitions. I could partially automate my postcard entries by printing directly on to poscards to a pre-detirmined format. I won many competitions, but sadly no life changing big wins. That was a lifetime ago, when things were much simpler.
