Comment When 5-digit /. user IDs were considered large. (Score 1) 192

Such glorious days were they! When every computer science diploma had an "Endorse Here" line on the back to cash at the bank. When simply couldn't fail. When Red Hat would destroy Microsoft -- "Is Linux ready for the desktop?" -- that headline was actually new (and exciting). When 5-digit /. user ids were extremely large values. Alice and Bill were still together, and in print. What's better: Alta Vista or Lycos? AOL was called America Online ("The future: now available"), but we remember CompuServe and GEnie and Prodigy and Delphi.

And let me tell you something: Java is going to change the world!
