Comment Ahh, Gopher (Score 1) 285

What a blast from the past. I remember using Gopher extensively back in 1993 in the U.Md computer labs. It was like you could find anything at the push of a button. Then I used Mosaic, with the pretty pictures and type fonts, and knew that was the future immediately. Problem was, bandwidth was so limited back then you couldn't do a whole lot graphically (most folks were working with 1200 or 2400 baud modems). So Gopher was often still the best choice. I remember the Internet Yellow Pages someone else referred to. And it took a half hour to download a single porn shot off usenet! Ah, the memories.

Stellar rays prove fibbing never pays. Embezzlement is another matter.
