Too square, it seems. [8]
My emailing was all inside the company 1980-1987.
It was fun enough to keep me off Compuserve which
seemed like the popluar way to internet at that time,
provided it gatewayed to outside services, which I
suspect it did, smaller BBS'es probably didn't.

What we're trying to find out, on two threads now, is how life
was before registered domain names. It would be nice to
see what a full email header looked like before 1985.

I was in Well territory in 1988. Had too much fun in the
real world to do virtual on my personal time.
The Foothill/Wierd/Halted thing was too damn great.
