In 1992, I was stumbling the Internet (we used to stumble prior to surfing) with a program using the Gopher protocol. From El Paso, Texas, I was able to look up the train schedule between London and Cambridge in England. At the time, it was like a miracle. Here I was in West Texas with a London-Cambridge train schedule. Unbelievable!
Shortly after that time when I didn’t think it could get any better than Gopher on the Internet, up popped the Mosaic browser and the World Wide Web. Netscape Navigator soon supplanted Mosaic, and I discovered HTML. Now I was able to see graphics and text plus I could link to other Web pages. In short order, I worked out how to create my own Web pages using a text editor and the new markup language, HTML. Some of the guys in computer services set up a host for me, and I was in business.
