When I was Coffee's age I had a dinky old computer (pretty much a typewriter with a tv on top)...and no internet access....
I discovered internet in highschool :sweatdrop:
I didn't get the internet until college. Basically in high school, that's when PC's were first starting to get popular, but internet was still pretty much an elitist place.

The demographics for this forum are so different from the other places I post at.
I wish anime fans were, on average, older and more sophistimacated, like myself.
I have to agree. There are a lot of other forums out there with older members. I will admit that I get very annoyed at how closed minded some of the youngsters get too - being all surprised that an adult (someone out of college) would actually visit a forum. Many of the older people I know who visit forums do so because they have very stressfull professional jobs and like to get a bit of relief during the day. It's nice to sit back and relax a bit about some common interests
I'm not suprised, the older members are what make a forum tick because they are mature enough to carry a conversation without saying " U SUCK, ADMIT IT _____________ ROXORS SO THERE U HAVE ITZ n00bzers. In a name of an anime
Without older members they topics in a forums would be "Inuyasha Rocks come here", "Inuyasha kicks butt come here", "Kagome rocks come here", "Kagome kicks butt come here", "Kagome and
Inuyasha rock come here" It would be pretty much the same type of topics an there would be no riot n00b control at all. So thank god for older members who can put us youngsters in our place.
