No offense, but really, what is a six year old kid going to do on the internet?
Internet not as in chatting forums, just browsing.

I was actually right here on PC during the early days back in 2003. I would have been about eleven at that stage. I never posted though, just looked. Same for RZ. I can distinctly remember witnessing some of the very earliest discussions. We only had an internet connection for a few months, maybe a year, then the aerial on the roof stopped working for some reason and we cancelled our subscription. We only got a new connection in 2008, which is when I joined both Rayman sites and started posting. I think I had some exposure to the internet prior to 2003, but I can’t remember much of it. Maybe it was in a library or something.

I'm not too sure, around 2001 I guess. I was barely 13 back then.

But even then, what's the point in surfing if you can't read anything? :P
Ah well, I guess it was more playing a handful of flash games over and over again then anything else.

The first website I knew was Yahoo & Yahooligans. I used to go on there a lot because I'm obsessed with aviation and I'd search for airplanes and such...
I may be weird, but do give me space to fit in....

My first use of the internet was at the age of 3, but I only gained proficiency with it at the age of 6.

I was 5 or 6, but I think 6.
I had a Bob the Builder game and liked to play it, I don't even know where is it now :o
