On December 19th, 1996 our home was connected to the internet using a new-fangled device called a cable modem. I distinctly remember when a brochure arrived in our mailbox expounding the need for speed, and describing the Wave service. It hooked me. I called and ordered it the same day. Our home was the 34th in the city to be connected to the system which now purports to have tens of thousands of users. Today, the cable modem is going back to the cable company and the home network is now running through my ASDL connection. You served us well, my cranky old friend. So long, and thanks for all the @home spam.
