    There was one claiming to be Cobain's autopsy photo... That was nightmare inducing... The 80% of the head was gone...

    Then again you guys did get to experience the 80s (at least most of you) which is something I am envious about.

    Facebook moms are the worst, try arguing with one

    Lol, one I got on one of them and this woman had in her profile that she was in Baltimore. I was chatting with her for a while. Then I went on google maps and started looking up streets in Baltimore and I found a park. I sent her a PM telling her I was in Baltimore and asked her to meet me at that park. She got freaked out and stopped talking to me.

    I remember the first mp3 I found. Mr. Crowley on some angelfire site. It took me all of 3 hours to download. It was awesome when we got cable internet and Napster came out. It took minutes to download a couple songs.

    I remember my dad telling me about rotten.com back in the early 2000s. Someone he worked with told him about it and he checked it out. He told me about a pic of some guy who wrecked his motorcycle and he ate pavement. He was still alive, but the bottom part of his jaw was gone and his tongue was just hanging there. It sounded horrible.

    I believe what was said earlier about what has been seen cannot be unseen, so I try to avoid that type of stuff for the most part. Curiosity did get the best of me a few times. I watched the R. Budd Dywer suicide video, and the video of this guy out in LA who stopped in the middle of a freeway and set his truck on fire with his dog inside. Then he took a shotgun and blew his head off.

    I don't know what has been referred to so far in this thread but in answer to the original question....

    I got onto the nets in the 90s with Windows 3.11.
    I had no browser so it was usenet/newsgroups for me.

    I thought it was cool: I have this cool fax modem and now I'm in touch with the whole world. I can barely understand a thing about what I'm connecting to...

    If I were a bit older I might not have missed all the exciting 1980s action with bulletin boards.

    A week or two after I got a fax modem I downloaded a Web Browser. It took about 48 hours to complete that mission.

    In the 90s I was using a modem and a scanner with Windows 3. Consequently I spent the mid 90s in IRQ hell.

    Sometimes I suppose that a person more clever than I with puters might have handled it better.
    But then I also think that if there was really no problem (apart from my own my lack of skills) then there would have been no need for USB.

    I breathed a sigh of relief when USB arrived.

    Napster was from early days, I remember finding out about it the same time the news was reporting that people stealing music on Napster were getting caught and getting high dollar fines like $27K and such, so I just stayed away from it then.

    The shit hit the fan right after I started. I ended up moving onto Sharebear, LimeWire and whatever the new flavor of the week happened to be.

    There was an obscure file-sharing website called imeem.com and that where I usually found mp3 of bands/musicians I have never heard of.... Myspace bought them and all the formats were gone..

    I remember using an IM program called "Pow Wow" that I think predated AOL's Instant Messenger. You could see the other user typing each letter. I remember being blown away at the potential. Now I just get irritated when my Boss IM's me.

    p2p, shareaza, bt torrent & the whole torrent thing. There was also file sharing hubs w/ dc++.

    I've always been a music collector of things rare, & ROIO (non-commercial releases). I've downloaded a few commercial things, but if I download it, I usually buy it, or delete it, because I didn't like it enough to buy it, I generally didn't think it was worth taking up disc space...

    I used mirc too sometimes.

    Most of the stuff I downloaded was stuff I already owned or songs that my band wanted to do. I would practice songs by playing along and it was easier to just que up mp3s rather than changing out cd after cd.

    I never heard of that. I used ICQ for a while before changing over to Instant Messenger.
