Growing up, I'd stay up until 3 or 4am on IRC, chatting with people from Europe, South America, Australia/NZ. We built websites, setup servers, shared knowledge, hosted radio shows together. No rails with technology. Fun times. That time is entirely why I'm able to support myself now. Sadly lost touch with most of them. I wonder how they're all doing now. This post brought to you by some MP3s of "The Streets" that I got from a Swede in those days.
