The bottom of the page shows a USA contact with the 888 toll free prefix. That is fairly new as I recall. New enough to make this a pretty weird site!

When we used the internet (then called the ARPAnet) back in the 1980s for email, marketing was forbidden! We could only support our ARPA-affiliated clients and colleagues.

This was at Xerox, using an Alto with bitmapped graphics, three-button mouse, email with fonts, WYSIWYG word processing, fileservers, and a duplexing networked printer. I don't know why I brought that up. Someobody mentioned 1980. A lot of research at PARC and elsewhere in the hypertext area was going on.

See just for a walk down memory lane.

Have a great weekend,

Please tell me this is not a serious web site. If it is, they need to
be sacked, heavily and quickly. ;-)
