Re: 3557 on the QM18 (!)

Yes, the Internet was around in the mid-90's. As was the World Wide Web (begun in 1991), which is an entirely different thing but which you may be referring to.

Did it not occur to you that there might have been other operating systems in use at the time, and that today's perception of "primitive" was not really relevant back then? I spent many a late night in 1992 in the Mac Lab in the basement of Upson working on computer science projects; aside from the frequent crashes, they served the purpose just fine. Then the next year, I obtained an account at the Sun Lab on the third floor.

Incidentally, the fishbowls were still in service on New York Bus Service in 2005.
