‪LO! What hath ARPAnet wrought? 50 years since the first LOgin attempt on 02-SEP-69 from a @UCLA ASR33 and IMP to the @Stanford SDS-940 the first breath of the INTERNET @ComputerHistory ‬

@SDF Quick question--is the word "attempt" deliberately chosen? I thought the LO message was on October 29th, but if this is an earlier, completely unsuccessful (rather than partially successful) attempt, that's good to know!

@SDF @jartigag fuck me, the internet is even older than I am! Just.

@SDF didn't know ASR33 could hook up directly to the IMP

@SDF er it looks like it could not. A second host, Sigma-7 was in between.
