20 Years On The Internet

Hard to believe but its 20 years since I first used the Internet in 1999. My first search was for a kids TV program RentaGhost and my first email address was a Yahoo.com one.

I’ve used lots of different computers from Windows 95 to Windows 10 even once tried to use a Mac but I couldn’t get on with them.
