    Now I realize that my Yahoo email account is already 16 years old, and the oldest email in my inbox is dated January 19, 1998. Yeahbah!

    The internet has become so widespread that some are already dwelling on the online world more than their real world. And sometimes their online personality is very much different from their true selves.

    1994 is the year I started the internet. The sound of connection is just muusic to my ears..Americas top 40 with rick dees, yahoo as always, yahoo chat, icq, mirc were just one of the sites that was keeping me busy those days. Rewind!

    That was the time when Philworld online and Pacific Internet were the top 2 ISP competitors. The fastest speed way back then was a "fast, blazing" 56k dial-up connection haha.

    I remember our internet connection before is a dial-up one. It was so slooow.. ma-stretch talaga patience mo. Haha! Tapos load2x pa nun- 50 or 100 pesos mga 6-12 hours lang. Hehe! Patingi-tingi lang talaga ang browsing kasi madaling maubos. tsk! Uso pa yung chat2x sa Yahoo Group chats, mIRC chat, tapos Google or Yahoo search lang ng mga celebs. May Limewire pa at BearShare for downloading music na aabot ng 1hour for each song. LOL. Ngayon, kahit cellphone lang gamit, ma-access mo na lahat at a considerably faster speed.
