Whenever I download a file larger than a gigabyte these days, I have flashbacks to when it took an hour to download a megabyte with Zmodem.

And I'd have to do something offline while it downloaded because I hadn't gotten a PPP account yet.

Yeah, I kinda miss watching the ANSI status bar and CRC/Checksum mismatch error count.

TW2002! I remember when I was part of a little cartel on our local BBS, ganging up on others, mining the hell out of everywhere, always on the lookout for secure topology, cloning planets, and having business meetings after AP Chemistry. How nerdy is that? One time I accidentally overflowed the number of credits a player could own and instantly turned 4.3 billion to negative 4.3 billion. Oops!

People still have games going on out there, mostly through web telnet clients.

They even tried to make a modernized MMORPG version, but it never materialized.
