I'm sure you're not being sarcastic, when you lose someone so dear to you, the shock is almost too much, & it plays havoc with your mind, even now, nearly eleven years after, I wake up in the middle of the night sometimes thinking she's laying beside me.

Amiga's were not out in 1960.
The internet was not out in 1960. ARPANET didn't even exist till 1969. ARPANET is the predecessor to the Internet.

And I don't think the internet existed when we had Amiga's either.

EDIT: Internet didn't exist till 1990's, and Amiga's were made in 85.
