Wow it’s as if they’re documenting my teenage years as though they were ancient history.

14.4 modems! The web! Newsgroups! They should be reporting on Doc instead.

''They should be reporting on Doc instead."

Yes indeed. There's a whole lot of interesting 'stuff' in there and the Doc's work certainly stands up.

I actually quite enjoyed the article, though at times it felt as if they were describing an alternate reality - one I don't remember. https://superbad.com/ looks interesting, but I can't say I spent much time there. They completely left off the bits about 300 and 1200 baud modems! As if the network didn't exist until 14.4. =/ I look back super-fondly on my old 128K ISDN line, with a latency so close to zero I couldn't reliably measure it. Good times. =)

Your pal, -doc-
