In less time than we’d probably like to imagine, there will be only a few people left on earth who remember life without the Internet. Those early computing days will be remembered as a novelty, full of 8-bit integers and pin feed paper and – oh, who could forget – the reign of Solitaire.

New blog How I Met Your Motherboard is cataloging early computing memories from Oregon Trail to the height of AOL, some by established essayists (though the site also accepts submissions). Click around for the nostalgia and read the accounts logged presumably for simple posterity, though it may come in handy for a few of our rogue descendants who begin to search for the truth about the imminent robot apocalypse.
