I registered and in early 94. And yes, those
caused a stir, both and the time, and much later :)

At that time, I was working at a startup in Mississippi (yes..), and
later "moved in" with InfoMagic, where we decided to move operations
from NJ to AZ. Since I was bored, I decided to put our T1's to better
use, and started up our ISP-part of the business, which we sort-of
had even in mid-1992, albeit off a 56K switched circuit using a NeXT
as a shell box.
