Possibly the earliest record of me on the Interweb thingy
You'll notice my old university email address email@example.com and remember, this was before the first graphical web browser (that was late 1993 if I remember correctly) and the main way of using the net back then (aside from email) was telnet, ftp, usenet and gopher (plus the occasional talk/ytalk and nethack session ;)
Ah, memories :) I can distinctly remember how excited I was when the engineering lab installed Sun IPX workstations that had floppy drives, so I could download Apple software and updates from bric-a-brac.apple.com (their main ftp server back then) and take them home on a floppy...
Update: The oldest actual content of mine comes a few months later in September 2nd 1993, with this post to comp.sys.mac.system where I reply to someone asking a question about the ohh-so-new System 7, pointing them to a utility called PowerSwitcher. One of the good things about PowerSwitcher, apparently, was that it only used about 2k of memory. Not even viruses are that small these days!
