Technology from the 90s that we suffered from (and survived)
Sometime last week. I was amused and inspired by a tweet from Twitter User Irwin in which he reminisced about technological marvels of the 90s that he had seen (probably before most other Twitter users were born) If any of these strike a chord with you, then you have given away your age :) It inspired me to remember the technology from the 90s, from my college and early working days that I loved, struggled with and I am so thankful that I don't have to deal with them today So here goes with my list 1) A dialup internet account Lifetimes have gone watching the 'connecting' icon and listening to that whirring sound of the dialler. Multiple times over, patiently, till it finally connected. We switched providers from VSNL, to Satyam to Nutkracker from Wipro, trying to find the best one. Oh, and the bummer is that, initially, every time the phone rang, the internet would disconnect. Thankfully someone figured that out and fixed it.
