Some neat reading today from the Internet Storm Center :thumbsup:

ARPANET - First experimentations 35 years ago (09/02/1969)
http://isc.sans.org//diary.php?date=2004-08-26

The Prototype Still Works After nearly 35 years of continuous service (the first node on the ARPANET was connected on September 2nd, 1969 - anybody throwing a party one week from today?) the experimental prototype network still works. I say "prototype" in reference to a quote that I heard a friend of mine say at DARPA a few years ago concerning the Internet, "Perhaps now it is time to quit experimenting with the prototype and build the real thing." How true! Especially when you consider that today's Internet is largely built on protocols developed in the 1970s. As I tell my students in various SANS classes, we've got to start thinking toward the future and push hard for secure replacements for all of the Internet protocols, including infamous ones like TCP/IP. In 35 years when the 'net is 70, will we still be using SMTP, FTP, telnet, and countless other "ancient" protocols?

Glad this thread wasn't closed, I just now saw it.
Seeing where we have come from and where we are now, all I can say is "WOW".
The earlier versions of the computer remind me of watching old movies where the airport control tower is shown from the inside or really old NASA-type movies. Because someone (Phawgg I believe) asked about how Windows progressed in a previous thread elsewhere, it's kinda neat to tie in the computer types as well.
My only gripe, however small it may be, is that we still had the 'laydown' computers rather than all these 'towers'. They were a nice space saver, lol.
Thank you Harry for bringing this to our attention, although I missed it for awhile.
