    Still have my slide rule. An acoustic modem got me talking to my XDH (former husband) a couple of years after the divorce because I wanted to borrow his, along with his terminal, so I could do my homework from home which was 65 miles from the computer lab. He let me borrow it, and we got back on speaking terms again. We are still friends, 28 years later. I also used to hang out on my share of BBS and discovered the reality that you don't know who the person on the other end of the 'chat' really is. Turns out I was coming on to the 13yo son of my flight instructor. The original chat rooms, and original text messages. Well, that is if you don't allow for ham radio. Now there is a hobby with a lot of alphabets, and theirs don't make logical sense. QSL, XYL and , well, you youngsters just don't know how good you have it. 73's

    Haha - I had CompuServe once upon a time! And my friend had an acoustic modem, but it was probably after they were already cool.

    In all that time I have never EVER seen a more abbreviation and acronym obsessed group such as here! WHAT the heck does 90% of this stuff mean?


    I've seen haabs, kaqs, mwuq, baiacs, seeps, and my personal favorite, pp. Plus a cubic azz-load more. You guys definitely do NOT make it easy on the newcomers to figure out what the heck you're talking about!

    Somewhere I ran across a member that had a list of some sort in their sig but silly me I forgot to mark it. The member was some kind of animally name. Rabid squirrel or angry chipmunk or raging raccoon, or something like that. No offense to you member if you are who I'm referencing!

    Give us new guys a break will ya? Post a nice big fact sticky sign somewhere that reads DEFINITIONS OF GOBBLE-DY GOOK HERE!

    Inquiring but overloaded smokey minds want to know.
    This gave me a REALLY good laugh reading this !
