Don’t even get me started. TLoZ is so dear to me.
AoL was originally the General Electric Network for Information Exchange (GENIE).
GE Sold it back in early 90’s where it became AoL.
I do remember using GENIE back in the day using a 2400 baud X.32 modem into AustPac to route across to the U.S. over the old X.25 public data networks with 7 bit even parity.
This is the time when I was at GE and we developed the QuikComm programs (the original Email service) on the old Honeywells and is why to this day, email attachments are still encoded. In the old days, 8bit data bytes was not available, so you had to encode 8bit data to 7bit data. It is sad that email still does it today and no one changed it or made it better, even though it is totally not required anymore.
Love this thread…
