I though Al Gore invented this thing called internet.
Nope. That's something G.W. pinned on him. Gore never claimed to have "invented" or "discovered" the internet. There's plenty of documentation of his exact quote that can easily be found. Some feel he may have taken too much credit. Many of the earliest pioneers of the internet however claim it never would have been possible without Gore's support - for what it's worth.

I still have my Commodore 64,tape drive, two 5 1/4 disk drives,and the boxes they came in and 30 or so games on disk and a few cartridges games. I remember typing or should I say hunting and pecking for hours, just to make a letter or move around the screen. I remember back in mid 70's my freshman year seeing some guys playing a star trek type game on the high school computer. I still have a punch tape around in a box of some program. Funny stuff, a flash drive with 8 gig of memory the size of a lighter.
