it wasn’t then either I spent most of my time in two way chat with people on IRC or their ‘PHONE’ app, which was a split screen, or on email.
This is back in 1990/91
One of my first groups was “elfkind digest” which was basically pre-furry furries. They were called “otherkin”. Friends with a few dragonkin and two classmates that were “elfkind” – a guy and a girl – they were both small, thin, long blond hair and even looked like little elves.
Ended up getting married. I think they still are. Love’s funny.
I liked using computers better then and now but there was a magic to a terminal for sure. It had the same immersiveness of gaming.
