Old timer

Not everyone here is new. I first downloaded Yggdrasil Linux on about 40 floppies over a 9600 baud modem from a BBS in the early '90s. For a couple of weeks or so, I'd dial in to the BBS every night before I went to bed and let it download until I got up the next morning. Once I added a sound card and a CD-ROM to my computer (the CD-ROM ran off a bus located on the sound card, so you had to have a sound card to install the CD drive), I ordered a copy of the CD from Owl Creek. Most of you are saying "What the hell is this guy talking about?" but a few are saying "Oh, yeah, I remember those days!"
