    um, about 15, and that was in 1997 i think. me and my bro used to have to put money in a jar to go towards the phone bill when we just had a dial-up connection. then about 3 months down the line my dad said he reckoned we appreciated how expensive it was and gave us the money back!

    what about you lore?

    Same for me, 1997. I was 17.

    I had been using that old modem since January 2003. Now I have a faster ADSL connection.

    God knows, let me work it out..er...I was about 12 or something, was when my mum was doing a mature degree in uni and I was just a pup.

    I was a whizz even then hehe, used to IRC from the uni but even back then just checking email was all done through VAX/UNIX. Was well messed up.

    Loved it though.

    Oooh did typewriters have a 1/2 key?!

    I've always been fascinated with them. They look so cool.
