Re: compuserve anyone

I recently came across my original FidoNet address in some old docs which really threw me :).

That naming structure was *very* geographical because it pretty much described the whole path to the node where you held your post, but it had no names in it. If you decided to pick up email from abroad it would cost you an international phone call.

That said, at least it was only text, not 10MB powerpoint files..
