Back in my day . . . Maybe some of you remember quantum link which turned into compuserve and aol I believe eventually. This was back before DNS when you had to type in the number of the server you wanted to access (no domain names etc). When I was a kid I remember being amazed we could read someones message on a TV!

I'm sure there are some of you out there that used it. I happen to know a guy who is an admin of the old Compuserve systems (they still exist! for at least a few more years) and they still have the old membership number system in place.

Anyways, I found a video of the demo of how it worked in case anyone was interested in the early start to the web. There was no sound or anything, and you paid per byte for your downloads (I think it was 300 baud at the time).

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Happy Saturday Phamily! I still get up at my normal time on Saturdays for the most part,but getting out of the bed is a process of negotiation. Any whose it - falling in for Dawn Patrol a little later than normal. Good Morning Friends!☕

My therapist ended our session today by saying, "Stay safe and pray for America" and I felt that was a pretty ominous way to leave things tbh.
