Also I should start pruning out FTP, Gopher, Archie and Veronica servers from my bookmarks.

For young people: these are ... ah... oh never mind.

:lol:

FTP are still used quite a bit; depending on what you do. (can't live without that if you do any kind of web development)

I still have mine too! :o

At least it's not in my inbox.. A few years ago I was looking at several thousands of mail in my inbox; I had enough. Took me almost a whole day (like ~8 hours) to clean it and sort it out properly.. Although I'm still using a 20 years old Yahoo mail adress; and I know one of these days they will shut down the whole thing; but I dread at the idea of moving to a different webmail and somehow porting over all these archives...

Looks like Archie and Veronica still exist in some form :lol: (you'll need an extension for the latter).

Personally I don't know any of those things (except FTP as Aloys pointed). And I thought I've been here a while... :shock:

I kinda miss the "old internet", where everything was ugly but you didn't have to deal with privacy-invading softwares like Discord, Facebook & similar... I'm glad forums like this one still exist though.

Yeah, it was the time you had to code your own privacy-invading software!
