When the internet access happened in our rural community our services were welcomed. With considerable corporate time in marketing the net was already a very familiar place.  We found that we had a very knowledgeable group of friends who were very much involved in various phases of the net so created a 'group' of fiends with the talents needed to create and develop a full service internet service company.  20 years later most of us have retired from our day jobs and utilize each other for small projects among our 'family' from this period.
