Oh, the pain, the pain!! Return to the Dark Ages.
Funny, I remember a time before there was ANY net, internet, local area net, wide area net, etc. You'd walk into the house and there would be a radio playing in the kitchen, and maybe an iron heating up, there might be a TV on in the TV room, but that was about it. Black rotary dial phones on each floor.
If you wanted to send someone a letter you sat down and wrote it on a typewriter or with a pen, stuck it in the envelope and sent it along. If it was an important letter, you made no mistakes or you had to start the whole page over.
Interesting times, in contrast to the Twitter universe today.
