AOL was around during DOS days? I learned DTP (tee hee) on DOS. I liked
Lotus 1-2-3, WordStar, WordPerfect 5.1 was my favorite app for a very long
time, but I learned WordPerfect on earlier versions. MS Word seemed a
little quirky an ineffective to me when it came out.

I'm not a dinosaur, middle-aged, yes, but not a dinosaur and I look 12,
which only adds to the paradox that is me. Ooo, Paradox, I remember that
app, too...
