The Abstract Truth

My first post on the internet

Posted by rbpasker on August 17, 2007

According to Google Groups my first USENET post was on 24-March-1989 from my account at RTI (AKA Ingres).

I had moved to California from NYC just the month before.

Mail seems to be the only thing I know how to use on the internet.
How can i fetch a copy of the latest GNUEMACS manual from your node?
Can you just mail me one via the internet?Any help would be appreciated.

thanks, bob pasker

    wow! Very cool, Bob. How come you did not tell me to quit history back then. Instead I could have been in the computer science building at SFSU.
