I got the pulsatin' rhythmical remedy

I just made this up - it was a fun trip down memory lane:

You know you're an old schooler when you can remember
  1. When no one had a connection speed of 4800 baud because the modems were too new and expensive.

  2. When Zmodem was the new file transfer protocol.

  3. When Telix and Qmodem were the BBS dialup programs everyone used.

  4. When you had your own nighttime BBS on your home line running WWIV software.

  5. When multi-node BBS's with real-time chat were cutting edge.

  6. When you got excited about upgrading your monitor from 4-color CGA to 16-color EGA.

  7. When your dad's Texas Instruments computer with the cassette player as a data drive and an old black and white television for a monitor wasn't obsolete.

  8. ANSI graphics.

  9. Command line instructions for a Hayes modem. (ATH1L2DT and so on)
