Default The Internet

How soon after the invention of the internet by Al Gore did you buy a computer ? What were the first things you did on line ? Do you use the internet as much as you did initially ?

I began using the internet at work in 1998 and bought my first PC in 1999 . I bought a book listing the amazing sites one could find on line . I was a internetaholic (I believe this was a word initially used by Seymour Pepper) .I would be on line from 9PM to 1AM on work days and sometimes as late at 5AM on weekends . Currently I am only on line from approximately 7PM to 10PM ,sometimes much less .

The only site that I still post on is an AOL Doowop board that I discovered in 1999 .
