> 2. You get a tattoo that reads "This body best viewed with Netscape
> Navigator 1.1 or higher."
> 3. You name your children Eudora, Mozilla and Dotcom.
> 4. You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like you
> just pulled the plug on a loved one.
> 5. You spend half of the plane trip with your laptop on your lap...and
> your child in the overhead compartment.
> 6. You decide to stay in college for an additional year or two, just for
> the free Internet access.
> 7. You laugh at people with 2400-baud modems.
> 8. You start using smileys in your snail mail.
> 9. Your hard drive crashes. You haven't logged in for two hours. You
> start to twitch. You pick up the phone and manually dial your ISP's
> access number. You try to hum to communicate with the modem.
> And you succeed.
