Nice add, Purdy Smile

Haha, but it wasn't puny back in the day Laughing out loud

It was being connected to in the early nineties from abroad to get, well, yeah, okay, driver updates, but it was the future, back then anyway Wink

I had totally forgotten about this one, but seeing the entry (thanks for preserving!) brought back a memory. Must have been '92 or '93 when my dad and me were at the local Apple dealer. I don't remember what my dad and the dealer were talking about, but the dealer told him with a proud face that "he was now connected to AppleLink". At the time, I had no idea what it was or meant but it sounded like something adventurous directly from the future. Today I see it was just a puny little BBS with tech specs and driver updates Laughing out loud
