Ah, some of you make me feel like Electron Mike from today's Diesel Sweeties. For some of us, e-mail practically was the internet for a long time. (Ok, there was the occasional use of Usenet and Gopher, and we had our own version of Google and Bittorrent in Veronica and Archie.)

My younger coworkers who ask me how I could forget to update my here/away status on IM and who laugh at the plain-vanilla stock ringtone I use on my cell phone (it just beeps a few times) are also guilty.

For those who are into retro-internet, Firefox still supports Gopher. I even discovered a few active sites, like this one.
