^I remember 3.1 in my school....my family got our first computer in 1995, with a whopping 500MB hard disc

We got the internet later that year I think..our first ISP was Virgin me thinks.

Anyway before the internet I read, played the Snes, and played with lego and awful awful lot

Before the internet, I used to write letters to my friends that didn't live in the area. I moved a lot, so I had a lot of penpals. I read a lot more too!

First got the internet in 1996 (I was 16). I very vividly remember going to an anti-Backstreet Boys website with a friend. I can't believe I remember that site!

When I first got the Internet, I used it mainly to look for pictures, to send emails, and find movie and music information. I certainly didn't use it then as much as I do now.

I read books and drew and painted. I still do, but obviously I was never on the Internet.

1997 was the year I started using the Internet at cafes and that's when I got my first hotmail account. One thing I can say is I definitely did not go to bed any sooner before the internet happened! Those days it was music on my walkman instead of music online! Of course I may have woken up later in the mornings during that time!

I don't really remember a time before the internet. I mean, I've been on the computer since I was a little kid. Well, I guess maybe I played with other kids and played with my toys and all that. I had a huge imagination, I really did. but the internet didn't stifle that; growing up did...

I know I had a LOT more free time. I read a lot more, watched more TV (if that were possible), had a lot more time with friends, and went out a lot more. Of course, I used to say "I'm bored" a lot more too.

I remember at work about 10-12 years ago, we had just gotten the new Netscape-precursor application "Mosaic"....I clicked on it and it took me into a whole new amazing world....and I've been on the internet ever since.
