So the local news is full of stories about how Yahoo just turned 15.

I remember being online before that - before there was a web, there was just a net and it moved very slooooowwwwly.  

There was no DSL, there was only dial up - remember what modems sounded like if you didn't know how to turn the sound of them OFF so that your loved ones would not hear you dialing up 1000 times a day to get your emails and forum messages?   That was one of the first things I learned when I got a modem - how to make it dial up SILENTLY.

Remember how different the demographics were of who was online and who didn't even know what "online" meant?  Like, before there was AOL and then it all went to hell?  

LOL... anyway seeing Yahoo on the news all happy to be turning 15 made me remember what the internet was like before AOL and Yahoo existed.  

In some ways better, in some ways not.

 Life is like that as things keep moving right along. :)
