Could be. I lived in Torrance, CA. There were free computer magazines all over the place in front of the stores and restaurants. Little computer ma and pa shops were everywhere. Big computer stores like Frys were popping up all over the place. Those were fun times.

I used to love shopping at the computer swap meets they held in the parking lot of Xerox. I started a couple of BBS's in around 1990. My main one was two lines running RemoteAccess, usually under Desqview. The Learning Curve BBS, Fidonet 1:102/332 - I ran that for around 10 years, until around the turn of the century when modem based BBSing was basically dead.

I can't believe I'm feeling like an old man now. :)
