I read some of this the other day but was too busy to finish it. I remember when IRC and a lot of the other things in that article first started. I started getting into computer a lot more around the mid to late 80's. I used to know a bit about coding BASIC, C, C++, dbase, Paradox and Machine Language but then I got into other things. I've always thought the best browser ever was Netscape. but sadly, it's gone...

I started around the mid to late 80's as well. Netscape, there is something I haven't heard of in a while. It was certainly better than IE, lol.
