Errr well, I can't remember what I did really. I didn't use the internet back then because I was so young and there weren't really that many good sites around. Not many good sites for a 12 year old anyway... . It wasn't really until the 21st century that I found any sites that were worth visiting regularly. The only website that I did used to go to was ASN because I found it fascinating reading about air crashes (the main reason I 'got' into aviation and A.net).

Before A.net I had to wake up at 4am and walk 25+ miles to the airport in rain, snow, sleet, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions just so I could read/write discussion topics using post-it notes on a cork board.
Quoting Aloges (Reply 12): In fact a.net was very helpful in terms of learning English.
Yes, A.net helped me very much to improve my English and I am glad about it.
Additionally (and the most fun of A.net)--> A.net made it possible that I could meet people from all over the world, sometimes I visted them in their home countries, sometimes we met in another country than our home countries, and sometimes they visited me in my home country, this is so great and I hope to meet more of you guys!

Before A.net...I didn't know as much about aviation and airplanes as I do now...I didn't "know" people all over the world...I didn't appreciate just how cool it is to live about 15 miles from the Boeing plant in Everett...I programmed a VIC-20 in Assembler!
