My first online experiences were on AOL in the late 90s. Those were some of my most favorite personal experiences on the internet. People could kick you offline (which was a big deal in those days considering you'd have to "dial up" at 14.4k on a fricking modem) by using punters, so I had to create an alter ego that ran those same programs (progs) as a defense. My username was Xtrmn8r. Ahh, the good 'ol days.
