You young whipper snapper! I remember bying my first 14.4k Modem (I splurged on the fastest I could get) from this guy called Siom Hacket at some little startup called Internode.

That was more than 10 years after I moved out from home.

I remember when they came out. I wanted one sooo bad.
Got my licence in Mums 1980 (maybe 81?) L Series wagon. They guy who took me said at the end that I should have technically failed, but he really liked the car so he passed me.

Saw a really nice one just two days ago. I think it lives somewhere near me.
