    Has anyone else watched this series? Geez, brings back memories from when I first started with computers, Internet, coding, and a BBS company that I ran out of my house in the mid 90s. I've watched the whole thing twice on Netflix and I have a couple of questions about it and was wondering if anyone else has watched it.

    It's kind of like historical fiction. Some of the names have been changed to protect the defunct. LOL. (i.e. WestGroup = WorldGroup) Starts about 1983 and goes until about 1994 or 95 ish.

    Squire, if you ever finish it let me know.

    They mentioned names like Macintosh, Apple, Prodigy, AOL, Compuserve, Packard Bell, and Windows. Nothing in-depth like they did with IBM. I think that "Community" was or could have been a version of Zumbl. Not sure, though.
