@Zeny I missed that boat - or rather, I think I might've sailed in on that boat?
@Mycroft I was too young myself. I was only 2 at the time
@Zeny Checking dates, yup, I was there, not in the first wave but don't know if it was segmented into waves. September 1993 was it, and I got my first modem in summer of 94, and signed into AOL.
Only for a month though, because I was still a kid and had no concept of billing rates and my mom canceled it the same day she got the first bill.
I found local BBSs though and got access to usenet and email from there.
This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It was created by @Tiwy57 originally for a small group of furry friends, but thought it might as well be open to all fluffies and scalies !
