    Every trip has a goal of being a round-trip.

I suppose. Even so:

    All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware. - Martin Buber

But in the end:

    We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. - T. S. Eliot

1991 is pretty old in internet time. My first freenet account was in 1995. It was so amazing - and so slow. We waited and waited for our dial-up connections to bring back data. But it still was faster than going to a library and finding an encyclopedia. :-)
