Wow! You went from being a net newbie to webdesign to software engineering! That's...wow!! Congrats to you!! I started using the net around 1995. That seems like a long time! I have an interest in webdesign....or maybe it's webauthoring....I mix up the terminology a lot! I know basic html, love to blog, and chatting is cool, but I usually only chat with folks for a specific purpose like for a special campaign I'm involved in...although sometimes I will get on IRC and just chat about regular stuff. The craziest I've ever done: I don't know...post a classified for The Pretender? Maybe one day I will do something really crazy...I''ll get back to you on this one! lol

the most stupid thing i did on the net was to mail back to mailerdaemon, which is a mail you recieve when your message is not delivered to the recipient and i was asking mailerdemon, who are you, will like to know you.lol

lol It's not stupid...just funny! lol I remember the first time I got an email from that...the word "daemon" had me thinking of demon so just looking at the senders address had me worried! lol It's easy to get confused if you're not familiar with things on the 'net!

i used it in 1998 , when i was in class 10. here in India net comes very late.. but i was fascinated by reading newspaper articles about upcoming boom of net.. i remember that i paid 15 rupees for 15 min of net usage . that also i dint know anything.. i kept a lot of addresses with me from the newspapers .. so that was quite helpful.. i was just happy .. but i was waiting when the price will be down.. and now i am using net in my home.. even i can now buy online . trade online and many more.. thanks to the inventor of this magic thing...

I started using the internet about 10 years ago. Beside browsing around using aol, one of the first things I did was to create a yahoo email account. I still use that account as my main email address. I also spent some time searching my name around on yahoo,those were the days...

I started to use internet quite long time ago. I used it from 1997. Now many things are quite advanced than at that time. I remember 56K modem for dial-up connection was the best at that time. Now I already use ADSL. And the price for it already descreases.

I have been using the internet for around 6 years or so now and I would be lost without it these days but I do remember when I first started using it and I got so frustrated as I had no idea how to use it! All I basically did was check my emails as that was all that I knew how to do... oh how different it is to today I now look up phone numbers, go shopping online, make money online and have great fun! I am so glad that we have the internet at hiome

I started using the internet 10 years ago, I have had a website of some kind for most of that time. I have had my current main website for about 6 or 8 years, I change it up as I need to and play on it alot. I currently have about 20 email addresses to go with all the stuff I do online, its easier to organize them especially since I can have unlimmited email addresses with my webdomain.

I started using internet in 2000 and the 1st site i visited is www.prothom-alo.com, a daily newspaper of bangladesh. The time i visited that website was a turning point of my life I think. It has changed my life. The craziest thing I have done is that after some day i started using net, i happen to meet with a very good boy over it. We became very good friends in a short time. So, one morning I went to his house which is 11 hours bus journey from my house. The strange thing was If I had not found him in the bus stand at afternoon, I would have to pass the night in the street. Because I had not enough money to stay in a hotel.

I started using the Internet 11 years ago. I remember that I was so excited about it. My brother had already internet at his house and I just wanted it myself. When I accessed the Internet for the first time I didn't know what to do. My brother made a suggestion. He told me to make a search about a tv show that I liked. At that time I was watching The X-Files, but I wasn't a fan. I don't remember if there was a search engine at that time. I know that I searched for a mailing list about the series. After that I got addicted to the Internet and to The X-Files. The craziest thing I did wasn't that crazy at all. I found out about MIRC, a chat script, and I made lots of friends over there. I would stay for hours chatting with them.

I started using the internet after I bought my second PC back in 1996. Since then, I've been addicted, and have used it consistently for business, research, and pleasure.

I started using the internet exactly nine years ago. I started the first browsing in my College at a nearby Computer center. I was very much impressed by the content of the Internet, even though not as impressive as the content nowadays. I still do the browsing and will do forever.

I began on the internet 12 years ago. I remember my mom using it and I was reluctant to try it. I didn't even know which websites to visit, so I went to the only website I had heard on TV, www.tide.com. LOL, yep, I went to the laundry detergent site. And it was quite interesting. After that I just got on more and more and became comfortable with it. I don't really know if I've done anything crazy online. I like to be safe and secure, but have fun at the same time.
