We had it in '95, but probably not what you'd expect. The ethernet was coax 10base-2 that a couple of us snaked through the ceiling with drops into five rooms (to provide for deathmatch playing of Doom using IPX/SPX) and the wireless consisted of Jordan's packet-radio transciever. Jordan was the only one that actually used it, as none of the rest of us owned "portable" computers. Ethernet access was provided by a 386 running Slackware that connected the end of the Ethernet run to the aforementioned port on the serial mux, that got us into a VAX termserver. With TIA running on one of the 11/780s we had a virtual SLIP connection.

Those were the bad ole' days...

You guys are lucky. My workstation has two separate CPUs with internet, but one's on the SIPRnet and one's on JWICS. There's only one NIPRnet computer in my whole section and someone else is always on it.

I get to design and analyze valvetrain components (cam cores, rocker arms, lifters, belt drives) for race engines, mostly boring american V8 stuff but now and then there's something really cool (recently did some work for a reno air race lycoming). I'll have a **** load of stuff to do and then nothing for a few days.

I browse this, the local miatamob forum, my email accounts, that's about it.
That sounds kinda cool. When I was in machine shop back in HS, we built a rocker arm grinding machine for a company out of California. It was a neat project that took a while to design and build but it was fun.

Sit at a computer. Tell contractors to fix software. Surf here, m.net, Nasioc, fatwallet and many fantasy football/sports sites. Listen to Howard Stern. Workout.
