    Interesting facts about the history of the internet....

    October 1969 The first host-to-host Internet message is sent across ARPANET (the forerunner to the Internet) from UCLA to the Stanford Research Institute in the United States.

    February 1973 FTP is born! Whhheww

    August 1988 IRC is created.

    November 1990 The WWW was created. Sure took them awhile


    Some interesting facts...
    In 1994, you could order Pizza from Pizza hut online!

    Also in 1994, The first banner ads appear on hotwired.com in October. They were for Zima (a beverage) and AT&T

    Again with 1994, Shopping malls arrive on the Internet

    Also in 1994, I found this one funny. Arizona law firm of Canter & Siegel "spams" the Internet with email advertising green card lottery services; Net citizens flame back

    Before 9/95, domain names were free!! :weyes:

    In 1997, the domain name business.com sold for $150,000 US dollars

    Another major milestone:

    1327: The Welsh invent the toilet
    1334: Invention is demonstrated in England. The English improve on the design by drilling a hole in it.
