Hello DD from the distant future long after the demise of the GOOFI stream. I had forgotten that.

Remember internet time? It was a strange time. Internet time was like going to a new place where everything is strange. A couple of days seems like ages, whereas another 2 days at home on the couch passes in a flash, unmemorably.

I'm glad to have seen, created, and lived through the birth of Cyberspace. I have read things from people who lived through the start of the industrial revolution during which people flocked to the factories. I suppose it was a bit like being in wagons heading west across the prairies or on board Captain Cook's Endeavour exploring the world [which admittedly had already been explored and populated from south east China long before to the Americas and across the Pacific Ocean].
