20 years at least. Maybe longer. Had a modem on my Apple IIe but preferred going to the library to use those internet terminals. Did they call it the internet back then?

I really can't imagine what the internet is going to be like 1 year from now, let alone 15 or 20! There have been so many positive and negative changes over the past years I just can't imagine.

Since 1975 (uucp account), even have some printouts of RPG email from 1986 (Game is still running).

I believe it was with a capital I and reflected the new domain based routing instead of uucp routing addressing. I remember the tables explaining how to address email thru various network gateways to get throughout the system.

For at least 10 years. We had a computer, but I really wasn't into it that much. When people used to talk about "surfing the web", I didn't even really know what to look for.

I've been online since the mid-1990s, I think. We didn't have a computer at home that could connect online until the late 90s, and school computers were, I think, offline as well. The first time I went online I think I was either at a friend's house or at the library!

I've been on since 1992 via early Netscape at the academic library where I used to work. Dialup access at home from c.1996 until 2000 via Earthlink then Verizon. DSL via Verizon from c.2005. Oh my, it has been awhile...
