I believe it was 1984.
My dad worked at IBM and brought home an Portable PC.
I played Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune on it with my mom, and I loved Facemaker. (It didn't look like the screenshot in that article; the PC's colors were amber and black only.)
1992 or '93, I think? I first used the Internet to do research for my French class.
Research for class, and messing around on Yahoo. Also my totally sweet Geocities page.
