Mine is pretty typical.

Mine was definitely wrestling related, but it went to porn very quickly. I remember dial up Pam Anderson pics taking a minute to load, where only a little was revealed at a time. THE SUSPENSE KILLED ME.

Mine was on the old dial up system and my brother had the internet and I found it amazing and I'd use it to see what happened on Raw that week cos the UK got Raw on a tape delay. I remember reading about Stephen McMahon being abducted by the Undertaker...I later realized it was Stephanie who had been abducted.

The first time I got on the internet was 1997, when I went up to my mom's work office in one of the big buildings in downtown Dallas one night. She set up the computer in the copy room for me and I was using Netscape (RIP).

Basically all I did was scour a shit load of Metallica websites and kept printing their band history and shit, anything else I could find on them I couldn't find in the magazines I normally read during that time.

I think I might have looked at some WWF (RIP) websites too, but I'm not sure. I just remember getting bitched at by my mom because I made like 50 color prints of Metallica shit while I was in there.

Mine was sometime in the mid 90's around when Goldust debuted. I thought his introductory promos were cool, but I'd never seen him wrestle. I begged my dad to let me use the free AOL hours thing that came in the mail so that I could try to go on and read about Goldust on the WWF AOL site. I know I found his profile, but all I remember about it is the picture taking like 10 minutes to load.

The first computer i used (were i was aloud to use the internet) was setup on Dec 9th 2001, the night Jericho became Undisputed Heavyweight Champion.

There were only a few programs on it, including Morpheus.
While my brother would download music i'd be download crazy videos of fights and accidents

At first i could only use the address bar to search for things because there were no web browser on the computer.
Until i got my own computer months later (which had more advanced programs) i was only on WWE.com

Mine was in grade 7 and our teacher had ask for two students to go to the library and look up some stuff on WW1. But he only asked for students who knew how to use the net.
So this decent looking chick puts her hand up as does I. I knew nothing about the net, never used it. But spent the day talking to her. Good times.

HAHA, I was a little shit when the Internet first came out and anytime my brother or sister were on the phone with their girlfriend or boyfriend, I'd fire up the Dial-up to interrupt the phone line knowing full well they were on the phone. Well, when I did this the connection would fail since the phone was in use BUT I could then listen to their phone conversations through the computer speakers. I wonder if they ever caught on cuz I did it all the time.

My first memory of the internet goes to AOL and their chat rooms. Would always be there either on WWF RPG rooms or I would go to WWF or Dragonball Z websites. Porn didn't really come to me until I got rid of dial-up and that was years down the road.

I remember contacting Cern in 1986 (before the internet protocol was developed), on a on loan nimbus computer.

This was for a school open day project. Those were the days (on it must have been a 2.4K modem - it took almost a minute to ask a question.)

Benefits of being the school swat.

Second time was 1990 - at university - a friend downloading hardcore porn from Sweden. Fascinating to see the individual lines of the image load up....
