Are you suggesting I don't remember my formative net years, Jussi?
I'm far too young for Alzheimers, but old enough that the Morris Worm
was a firsthand experience...

I remember Mike from before the Law.  Long before the Law.  I know
James Nicoll.  I helped untangle Kent Paul Dolan's stunt with the
speculative fiction newsgroups.

.cabal and sci.physics.edward.teller.boom.boom.boom were a couple of
my pranks...  Yes, I murdered B-news.
