Internet History Lesson
Here is a
link to an article on Wired Magazine
siting the first DNS (Domain Name System) test of the Internet in 1983.
Before that we simply used Arpanet and connected via IP address, or by dialing direct from computer to computer via the phone lines.
The article says that "DNS will lay the foundation for the massive expansion, popularization and
commercialization of the internet
Ugh. Now you know why we elder geeks are so cranky.
