Nope, I mean the early nineties, when the Internet was still young and
largely spam free, but definitely not limited to U.S. defense anymore,
the web was just one of those novel ideas, and my boss asked me why on
earth we should request a public IP address block when UUCP worked just
as well for E-mail. (He didn't know about Usenet, thankfully, otherwise
he'd probably have prohibited it.)
