No, no, no, no ... definitely 1991. Gopher and Archie were a
step a right in the right direction, but I missed CIX - though
300 baud did suck.

I blame it all on registering Internet domain names. Imagine,
being able to address someone without knowing the path
to their machine ... and, horror of horrors, getting an e-mail
from someone you didn't know! ... that opened the door to
the Green Card lawyers and it went downhill from then on.
Bring back the bang!
