What did you guys get up to when the internet was still "young" and not as well used as it is right now. I remember when I first used the internet, the first thing I searched on Google was Top Cat lol

Internet was very slow and was not cheap for me in the early days. Not like now where it's unlimited and far cheaper and faster.

There were so many slots free that I had to use the mobile network and I had to use and 10GB a month.

Dial up was very very slow when I was a kid. Sometimes you had to wait 20 minutes to an hour just for a page to download. IT was ridiculous.

Same here. You could go cook a whole meal and the download was still not finished.
Hell you could do your taxes take your laundry through a full load and watch the entire Godfather trilog within the time it took lmao
