On October 29 of that year, for perhaps the first time, a message was sent over the network that would eventually become the Web. Leonard Kleinrock, a professor of computer science at the University of California-Los Angeles, connected the school's host computer to one at Stanford Research Institute, a former arm of Stanford University.

Forty years ago today, the Internet may have uttered its first word.

Funny you should mention that man. I quit again for quite a while, but just fired the account back up last night. Been so busy with Halloween stuff for the last 2 nights, I haven't had a real chance to jump in yet.
