Thank you, Xose.  I remember the early days of the internet and Usenet newsgroups.  With a 9600 baud modem, that site was lightning fast!    ;D

That was way before I ever had a computer. I wouldn't have had time for it anyway! It's neat though.

I bought my first computer in 1989; an NEC PowerMate 286 with DOS 5.0    I installed Windows 3.1 about three years later to see early websites.

I have been told by one of the first members that the RMB Usenet group started on 1 September 1987...
