Today marks my 10th year online. I officially got my first computer, a Compaq Presario CDS 520 for $1,800 on this date in 1994 and immediately signed up for Compuserve, AOL, and Prodigy. I was on Prodigy for about an hour and quit. AOL and Compuserve held my attention until I signed up for Chattanooga Online.
My 486/66 wasn’t the fastest beast on the block, we’re up to what? 3ghz systems now. The Mac is a cool machine again, but it would have been my choice when I went computer shopping, had Office Depot approved my loan. Circuit City did, and they got my money.
So anyways, It’s been a fun 10 years and we’ve seen it all come from a geek/education thing, to the new frontier of music, movies, communication, etc. No where near what anyone could originally see, and I sure wouldn’t admit to see it some 10 years ago.
