I can honestly say I'm not that old. :p
/Runs and hides before the cane-walkers catch up.

Seriously though, that is such an amazing/drastic change from then to now! o_O

The first time I was in Internet was in the computer pool at my university in the mid 1990's. And I thought: how boring. But that changed quickly. :D

They had Netcape Navigator on Windows 3.11 machines.

You guys are making me feel bad. My first "internet computer" ran Linux .01 beta, connected to the university's physics dept server and from there I could use tty based programs like archie, veronica and ftp. Browsers were still a few years away from being functional in 1991.

I remember playing hangman and doing coordinate planning with systems using floppy disks when I was in middle school. My first internet experience though was when I bought my own computer in the mid 90's. It was a Dell and I believe it was a 350Mhz Intel. First internet provider was AOL and the oh so never forgotten chime "You've got Mail".
