What we're trying to find out, on two threads now, is how life
was before registered domain names.

In the unix world, uucp and netnews, both using bang separated
pathnames. Tom could explain the details of FIDOnet, which had
gateways. Then there were all the other corparate/educational
nets with their own naming rules (bitnet,decnet and dec's internal
networks). Most people had slow point-point links at the periphery.
