Do you sometimes believe you invented
the Internet, or even the modern computer operating systems? Many people do, and
many people did, and probably you did too.
Watch right here
for your opportunity to register yourself as the real, authenticated inventor, and trade tales with
all your colleagues! Coming up real soon now. Honest! We
expect a heavy load from Gore campaign headquarters so we're
working on a direct line to them as they move around. But we somehow can't find the ARPANET
anywhere. Where'd that go?
Be sure to join the big heavyweights, including Al Gore and
all those really legendary ARPANET developers, to establish your authentic
credentials as the one and only true inventor of the Internet. History
is depending on you now, so don't bonk!
Stay tuned! - Your sincere Webfussmeister
