8. Knee deep snow? Hell, that's nuthin'!

Back in the day I had to go to the university's computer lab and log onto a unix terminal with a green and black monochrome screen just to check my email. Back in those days, we only checked our email about three or four times a day. Smart phones, wi-fi, hah! We had to walk to the IT building uphill and in waist-deep snow if we wanted to get online, and we din't have none a' them fancy browsers or email clients, either! Back then, you knew your unix commands or you went without! And we were glad to have that limited connectivity, too! 'Course folks wuz a lot tougher back in the early '90s. We had to be.

On edit: I meant "unix" rather than "linux". See, we didn't even have linux back then. Damn kids!
