Quite a while Bonj, I think it finished in the mid '70's so thirty odd years to put in place the necessary technological infrastructure. I doubt many people in Britain had Interweb access much longer than 10 years ago. It's also in East Asia where most of this technology seems to be produced anyway![/QUOTE]
There were people in the internet in Britain in the 80's, I can remember modems changing hands in the pub. As for the Web it wasn't invented until 1993.
