Tell us about your first computer — or the first one that you went online with — and what was that experience like?
I was working as an electronics retailing journalist at the time and my first computer was a laoner low-end Acer “386″ machine running Windows 3.1 with a dial-up modem (Acer never asked for it back). No idea about RAM. And of course it had a 3.5 floppy drive.
When I figured out how to use the modem, I initially joined some bulletin boards and actually got into my first internet argument with somebody.
I think I got a Prodigy install disk sent to me at work, and I gave it try. It was a lot of fun, especially when I discovered their “TV L-Z” discussion area that included a section on MST3K.
What about you?
