Not that there seems to be a lot of interest, but Bob Dole ran "The Dog House" and then "Abiogenesis" in the 816 area code (Fidonet 1:280/310) and served a few years as the president of the Greater KC Sysops Association. (You know...those geeks that took Southwestern Bell and the PUC to task so you geeky bastards didn't have to pay business rates because you had a computwer attached to your phone line.)

What internet era is this from? I'm fairly sure I wasn't online. My first internet experience was in Jr. High during the mid 90s.

Anyone here ever a member of "The Country Club" BBS out of Mississippi? That place was AMAZING. $20 a year you could get the latest hacked software before it was even for sale in stores. I remember many hours spend dialed in with my Compucom 9600 baud modem, downloading for hours. There were 4 of us with Compucoms in my shop, and we had about 20 people who would chip in for our long-distance bills in trade for copies of the goods.

Oh, and who could forget Russ & Edie's???

It's the "internet era" where it was only populated by government, scientists and higher ed. That's why there were dialup BBSes and Fidonet echomail.

No kidding.

Bob Dole really figured there were more of us old-timers who could still see well enough to read and respond.

Reading through that stuff sure did bring back some things that Bob Dole hadn't thought about for years and made Bob Dole dig out some old junk he's had piled in a closet.

SaudiNet, the battle with SWB, a paper Bob Dole wrote in 1990 that predicted that wireless networking was the future, and the MIS prof marked it up because he thought Bob Dole was a kook.

It's pretty wild to think back and remember setting up a PC at Maple Woods CC library so people could send netmail to troops, which were saved to floppy, then taken back home and loaded on the BBS so they could be transmitted to the node coordinator, yada yada... It was a big deal because the netmail was transmitted and printed and distributed in 2-3 days and snailmail was taking a week or more. Now we wouldn't have all the intermediary steps and the damned thing would be there in 12 seconds.

I'm pretty sure I was running a forerunner of the computer in 1968 for the Air Force. The thing occupied the space of a two car garage and after I typed in the information I was given a stack of cards about three inches tall and 6 inches long. I then transmitted them to Langley AFB on another part of the machine. Anybody know what that could have been?

Punch cards were a common input method, so it was probably some sort of IBM mainframe.

Bob Dole's dad used to bring home old punch cards from the S&L as a toy. You could make some pretty cool card houses out of them.
