Not often I can say it, but I was there!

At 10:44 AM on 12 November 1991, an IP “ping” packet was sent between Rhodes University’s computing centre in Grahamstown to the home of Randy Bush in Portland, Oregon. This is the earliest known IP connection between Sub-Saharan Africa and the rest of the world, and thus marked the start of Internet connectivity in South Africa……not often I can say it but I was there!

Can you spot me?
