I was 12 when we got our first computer. It was an Apple iMac – a top of the range, cathode ray tube monster with a funny one-button-mouse. My brother and I used to play Nanosaur and Solitaire on it.
When we got a phone line splitter, the dial-up internet was ours. After 6pm, the internet rates were cheaper so our parents enforced strict after-6 surfing rules. Every few months I would change my allegiance from Netscape Navigator to Internet Explorer and back again.
I soon discovered Yahoo GeoCities, registered an account and started learning HTML. Webpages back then were simply horrendous!
