This is the story of how me and the internet met.
Back in 1996 after I graduated high school I started college, we didn't have a computer at home, but besides the college there was this little café called Arobas (if I remember correctly)
A new friend from college invited me over for a cappuccino (yes back then I drank coffee), when I got there he was on the computer. I asked what he was doing and he said he was chatting. I was like what? you are what? So he explained what internet was to me and created me a nickname for MIRC.
That was it I was hooked! I spent almost 2 sessions going to the café, even skipped some classes (that I ended up failing because of that)
I taught the internet was the most incredible thing. My first chat buddies was from Texas. His name was Antonio, I was convinced he was the love of my life, until I saw picture of him and spoke to him on the phone. Internet didn't seem so great anymore.
My dad then bought a computer so me (I was selfishly thinking of myself) and my sister gave him an internet connection for Christmas 1999.
I met my first motorcycle buddies on MIRC in 2000, some of them I am now real friends with. Because of MIRC I had my first internet date (disaster)lol
MIRC (and that college friend) opened up a new world to me of googling, chatting, forums and (as of the past years or so) of blogging.
So how did you meet internet?
