The Swiss will say that they are responsible for the introduction of the interweb, but we Brits know that it was one of our own - Sir Tim Berners-Lee - that was behind it ...... the fact that he was working at, and contracted to CERN at the time causes the confusion.

Anyway, 25 yrs. old today - what would/did we do without it.

It`s a curse and a blessing. My house is leaving a lot to be desired thats for sure but I know a lot more about useless stuff than I have a right to.
