I must admit, hearing of the demise of CompuServe is like hearing an obit of a celebrity you didn't know was still alive.
I haven't thought of CIS in years, though - along with the Source, it was my "gateway drug" from BBS to commercial services.
It's too bad AOL can't donate all the CIS IP to someplace like the Internet Archive, to preserve it - sort of like an online Colonial Williamsburg (grin). CompuServe, now that I'm reminded of you, I miss you.
Time to break out the old Dead Kennedy's & Sex Pistols LPs & wax nostalgic for"morning in America"
