There's a memory.....it wasn't that long ago I used to dial in to message boards with a 28.8 modem.  In some ways, I kind of miss those days...

I also remember the buzz that 56K modems generated when they first hit the market....blazing fast speeds!

How time flies..

I remember living in Burleson Texas just outside of Fort Worth when I joined FF and I could post go to the Rest room and get a drink before it popped up to read the next post.

Catfish is a show where these people meet online and have a relationship and one of them isnt who they have said they were the whole time. Very interesting

I'm 26...and only recently upgraded to a smart phone. Only reason I did it, is because even after the stupid finance edge thing that verizon does, it lowered my bill 15 bucks a month....

I'm uncertain what you mean?? Haha

Had 150 minutes a month. No texting(obviously), huge antenna, bulky, but some dang good signal. You be in BFE and still talk if you needed to.


I think I was in 8th grade when I got that phone. When it was in my pocket, I always got the adolescent joke..."hey is that a phone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" Ha.

I didn't get texting till the early 2000's  I also remember how fast FF was on Dail up after Midnight.

My first cell was a Motorola Dual Tone Stick Phone that I still have. It still will make calls in the darkest corners of Eastern Arkansas.

Mike is still around.  I have lunch with every month or two.

I'm definitely still kicking. I think I'll start posting more instead of just lurking. Even thought about getting up to my old hijinks with picks and polls.
