And BBS's you could dial into, which were like far tinier versions of the Internet. More a local system with text games, files to download, message boards, quite a few other things.

The corporate take over of the internet. I so agree. The best part was no popup ads or tracking.

#18 your modem had nothing to do with your sound, if you changed your dial string to have S25=0 it would mute it.

Absolutely No Rules

"I must be older than anyone here, because the "early days" of the internet was back when years still started with 19. And there were NO RULES. There was no online tracking, no ad-bots, just no enforcement of any kind. Essentially the internet then was what the dark net is now. Anything could be found, but only if you knew where to look. Search engines were all but useless and nothing was protected for [email protected]#t. A few hours in a dumpster full of paper could get you access to nearly anything. That was the early days of the internet."
