The earliest internet like activity I recall was 1986 when I used the military's arpanet and we communicated in a network manner between computers. I had a desktop computer and was using a remote computer to compile programs that I had written. Internet, as we define it today didn't arrive for me until 1988. It was terribly difficult to install all of the necessary memory tricks on our desktop computers to allow us to use the internet. Netscape was the first browser that did all of this for us in the 1989 / 1990 timeframe and the internet became more widespread. Those were wild west days in the computer to computer communication era.There was no Internet in the 80's Lynne.
There was something like the internet in the 80s though. The Commodore 64 allowed you to communicate with other computers via a phoneline and use the old BBS. My brother had that one. So it was truly the beginning stages of the internet.There was no Internet in the 80's Lynne. I didn't even get online until something like 1998.
