Almost ever BBS had a list of smilies that could be downloaded. 8*p

BBS = the way we used to tie up the phone line and waste time on the computer before www. 8*)

Which, as far as I know, is where the tagline came from. Some here on dgrin still use them.

Taglines like:
The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity

Or

[font=&quot]Time flies like the wind fruit flies like the bananas

Lest we forget: lol, roflmao, imho.

You could download files. Take three for every two you upload. All this with a 9600 baud modem...those were the days. 8*)

Sorry about the trip down memory lane.
