My First touch of the magical place happenend when I was 12 years old and in the Junior High School. Back then I had to journey about 5km from my home to the town center just to access Internet. The Connection back then was not this current fast internet. We were on Dial - Up internet Connection that will take AGES to open just a page. Pentium I Dell CPU, Operating System was, Windows 95. My first joy on the internet was when i first saw Windows XP. The colourful Start Menu, The Bliss Wallpaper and the log on sound
As a kid I was Interesting in the gaming aspect, my favorite website back then was Miniclip. God, I loved that site. , I think I'd to visit there one of these days. I heard about e-mails from one of my friends, telling me how with just a click of a button, messages are send. I decided to give it a try since I used to write letters quite a lot via air mail. My first email address was at good old Yahoo. Yahoo was soo popular in my country. When it got to choosing a Password, the attendant was like "oh just type 8, eight times" I went ahead. Not knowing how passwords work. But i think I know how it works now.
My First social network website encounter was with Hi5, up to date I still don't know how I registered, I think I got an invite via Yahoo.Then Excite.com, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Google +. I maintain a blog at My Opera at the moment. .
As always, I say the Internet is such a huge place, bigger than the real world. Because Imagine ideas, words from all around the world. And these ideas are not just once, it could be thousands.
Back then I used to travel long distance just to access Internet, but today, Internet is almost every where, on Mobile Phones, On TV and on Referigerators! The Internet is such a cool place. Lets stay there peacefully. check out this netiquette
