Ten years ago today...

December 26, 1994
 
Ten years ago today, I had gotten connected to my first furry resource — the Trap Line BBS, a furry dial-up BBS that was then based in Toronto.
In October of 1994, I had bought myself my first computer — a 486-SX/33 by AST Computers. A friend of mine that was a Mac user gave me a computer paper's listing of BBSs, since I was interested in trying out the online world once I got myself a modem. There was a listing in there for the Trap Line, but I didn't really understand what the description meant aside from the references to animals. Since I've always been a big cat lover, I had to check it out...
For Christmas that year, both my brother Jamie and I got US Robotics 14.4 K fax/modems for gifts... so I immediately started to try it out. I tried a number of BBSs, but managed to connect to The Trap Line on the day after Christmas. Having not known exactly what I was getting into, it was a bit confusing and rough at first to try and figure out the board, but for some reason, I kept going back. Maybe it was the smutty furry artwork that was available... '<img'>
Anyways, that's about all that there is to say on the subject... so far. '<img'>

Let's celebrate *raises her mug full of tea*. Does that Trapline forum still exist in one form or another?

Ten years is a long time for most anything, yeah. '<img'>
 
As for The Trap Line... I don't think it exists anymore. I sorta know the creator of it, but I don't think he put the board on the web in any form.
