    My God, I was a bartender at a cowboy watering hole on Hwy 97 in WA. My customers had problems reading the print versions, let alone home computers. But beer was 75 cents a glass, well drinks were 2 bucks and a shot of Crown Royal was $2.50.
    Gawd, I’m old.

    Yep. With the second ‘puter I ever used I’d dial the number and plump the handset into a pair of cups that defined the modem.

    Good times…good time…
