    I'm too lazy to have a dog but my neighbour's dog inspired me :)

    DLPerry used to pay her ISP by the hour just like I did back in the bad old days.
    I use to pay $1/hour for a crawlingly slow dialup connection :)

    If Suz remembers ISP-by-the-hour, Suz may also remember DOS Batch Files -- unless Suz is not quite THAT old. ;)

    My first ever 'website' was done entirely in DOS batch files. :eek:

    Yes I'm growin up (and possibly sideways but anyway.. ) I remember the DOS days but I can't even imagine what making a site would have been like.. I guess a lot like using notepad but with funny colours.

    Oh ya... I remember those times - such memories - learning programming sucked then too.

    SuZ is a great designer!

    The old adage "If you don't use it, you lose it" is true in my case. I have forgotten nearly everything. hmm, lesse...

    C:\format
    <evil grin>

    I do remember making 'control panel screens' for our 'Dumb Terminals' using DOS Batch files.

    Different departments used different files/software/etc. so I built screens for each that allowed the end-users to 'click' a title on the control panel screen rather than having to use a command line.

    I got pretty creative at making imagery out of acsii characters. And when we got color displays it was even more fun.
