... nothing, only one mailbox with 4 modem lines at the company Intuit.
A mailbox was a computer, to which were attached a few modems.
With your own modem you could connect this computer via phone line and
download data. The maximum speed thereby was 14.400 bit/s, later 56.600 bit/s.
In our case the customer could download service packs ans patches of our
sowtware. The demand rose, but the lines were limited. At this time Intuit
Deutschland does not have an Internet presence. So I had the Idea to build
a private website to provide the service packs and patches to our customers.
That was the birthday of my website.
Since the beginning the basic structure with the head, navigation and
content areas stays the same. The files for our customers could be downloaded
directly from the first page. Three topic pages, which were my own topics,
could also be viewed.
The page contained the topics Quicken, Railway, Edith Stein and Jokes.
