Not quite older than the internet.

darksumomo's post today reminds me that I've been on the internet for over 30 years, thanks to digex who got me an e-mail account at MIT so I could read and comment on the ARMS-D mailing list back in 1978. Maybe even 1977. Needless to say, I am not now, nor have I ever been, a student at MIT. I didn't even bother applying there, since I knew my math skills stunk on ice and I didn't realize they also had a liberal arts program. Who knew? I thought all those people went to Harvard or BC. Anyway, yeah - 31 years on the Internet. I'm sure there's people who have been on it longer, but it's something else I can shake my cane and yell at the kids about. :)
