    Watching an X Files episode from 1995. The Killer in this episode uses THE INTERNET to enter CYBER CHAT to stalk and kill his victims. It's interesting to see the 90's internet, seeing as i lived through it. Mulder - "im going to send out a localized online warning!" Yeah, that works/exists.

    >DIAL IN MAINFRAME
    >HACK CYBERSPACE
    >INSERT TECHNO VIRUS

    Also, why do TV writers come up with usernames that are stupid? The killer is 2SHY, the victim is TIMID.

    God damnit i miss the 90's.

    I find the dial-up connection sound oddly nostalgic

    I must agree. I found myself connecting and reconnecting and never bitched about it.

    The worst sound to hear was the phone ringing. Or to here someone talking on the phone in the other room. More often then I care for I remember nearing a high score on some game and have to yell "DAD, NO! GET OF THE PHONE!" Of course it was always in vain, as the connection was lost.

    Looking back on it, I do miss it. Not really though.
