Your first shell account

USF account
My first shell account.

You find the oddest things when you’re cleaning out old files. Like a printout for your first shell account. Mine dates from August 30th, 1993–only a short time after my arrival at New College (then part of the University of South Florida, they’ve since sensibly seceded). It was also only a few months after the 1.0 release of NCSA Mosaic, although I’m not sure I actually saw a web page in Mosaic until a few months later.

I don’t think still exists. I know my account doesn’t.

When & where was your first shell account?
