Introducing the Internet

    In the distant 90s, even when the mail was UUPC and 14400 modems, dad said that we now have Internet at home. I was still a child then, and it was not clear to me how it is so possible to "see the whole world."

    At first I was not allowed on the Internet, they spoke very expensively, and it was somehow uninteresting to me (and the age is still not the same).

    A few years later I first saw the "site". This first site I saw was yahoo. I still remember his first design, the standard blue colors of the rulers, nothing complicated. Somewhere at the same time, I registered my first mailbox - on hotmail.

    Through yahoo for kids, I found a girl from America with whom I corresponded for several years.
    Then it was time for the first personal page. It was made in ms word, consisted of 2-3 pages, with the proud inscription “My Homepage”.

    After that, I heard the word HTML, and I was incredibly interested in how to use this HTML to make a website. My first attempts to process data from forms using only input tags did not lead to anything, and with the help of a huge thick book on HTML I learned about the existence of such a monster as Perl. My first Perl script just sent mail.

    I was wondering how it all works, I wonder how to do it, what can be obtained from this.
    Today, I am grateful to my father for teaching me the Internet, the English language, and everything that helps me achieve my goals.

    Here is my story of exploring the Internet.
