I stumbled online using AOL and Apple's "e-World" back in the day, before the "WEB" took off.. Then I remember either it was AOL or e-World that allowed you to leave there site and venture onto the "Web". wasn't shortly after that, I got an account with a local Internet provider. Even set up our office so 5 computers could share the modem connection. This was like in '94 or '95 ??

All those crazy websites, with like the gray backgrounds, and just really long pages.

I'm really old (in PC years). My first online experience was with "The Source" and later on "Compuserve". I had a 300 baud (that's 0.3k) modem when using The Source and upgraded to a 1200 baud (that's 1.2k) modem for Compuserve.

My first internet modem was 14.4K and it was so fast.. (and expensive) But once ShreveNet offered 56k I had to have one. Now I use DSL.

Geez, AOL? That's was high-tech compared to the monochrome bulletin-boards of my youth. We'd pick up the monthly computer magazine, which listed dozens of phone numbers for your computer to call. It was basically a dial-up website.

On a completely different topic, does anybody know of any Shreveport blogs? I'm not talking about Gannett-imposed blogs like the Times, just blogs of citizens in Shreveport. Any ideas?

I have been on the net since 1995.

Sorry it took so long but I was waiting for Al Gore to invent it :-) I was just a gamer like Doom and Duke Nuke and others till I got tired of them and now I never game on the computer. Seems some get it and others well they will never get it. Road kill on the internet highway !

Commander Keen, Duke Nukem, Doom, RPGs where there were no pictures, just descriptions and you had to type the actions of the characters.

This is the only one I know of (by Robert Trudeau)
http://shreveport.blogspot.com/

But really, I *think* this was one of the ideas behind this shreveport.com site. Only there are few blogs so far. I've been thinking of ideas for a blog or even a podcast but I'm not an expert in anything interesting.

I came along after the web was alrighty out and about. I got my first computer when I was 12-years-old. It had Windows 95, less then 128MB of RAM, the CPU would be considered stoneage by today's standards, YET it was still the most expensive computer I have purchased to date ($1,300). AOL 3.0 was the latest version back then. I was connected through an internal 56k dial-up modem. AOL was AWESOME back then. Very little spam, a lot of nice chatrooms with great people, and hilarious wav sounds to trade (like the infamous DUCKJOB!!!). AOL is slowly dying now, but I've got DSL and love it.
