Does anyone remember Q link for the good ol' Commodore 64?
It was a magical service. Do you remember what it morphed into?
Yep - I do - it became AOL. I had one of the original Vic-20s, then upgraded to the C-64, which I loved (and still have). I learned to program on that, which definitely helped launch my career in IT.
I am trying to decide if nostalgia is enough to make me buy one of the new ones: http://www.commodoreusa.net/CUSA_C64.aspx
Quantum Link later spawned PC-Link, which became American Online.
I had PC-Link and got rolled into AOL. When I finally cancelled, they told me I was a member for well over a decade. (almost 20 years?!)
I just felt privileged to know what a Commodore 64 was! My parents got one at one of those multi-level marketing seminars where they promise you a certain gift if you stay for the whole thing - so we had this keyboard which you could use to type words onto the television. Wow! Surrounded by all you egg-heads, I feel like a neanderthal because I never understood its computing ability, I got bored with it when making letters and words appear were all it seemed it could do. Ug!

Now I am not saying this applies as much as today as when it was written and carpet bombing was still in use. I think it has kind of shifted to technology rather than massive destruction. But perhaps that is just a...
