I remember having 5 attribute points to assign, with no more than 3 to any single attribute, and not knowing what they did.

I remember starting with 3 charisma.

I remember training learning skills to gain attribute points so that I could train useful skills.

I remember starting in space near an asteroid with a NPC. I didn't attack, because I wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting into before I started a fight, so I warped away. Since I had no bookmark, I could never return. Thus ended the tutorial pre-Apocrypha.

I remember being completely ignored in lowsec when I was mining in my Bantam.

I remember looking like this.

When I was a lad we were so poor I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

When scouting was easy - 2/8/3 Frigs/Cruisers/BS because that's all there was.

I remember when Tech 2 BPOs were offered by research agents after a lottery distribution.

I also remember turning one of those offers down...
