Might have been the late 80s; I get a bit confused at stuff that happened
so long ago. I know that the machine on which I first used it was
decommissioned before, or possibly during, 1990. We didn't use IRC for
BBSes; it was when I was doing experimental work on TCP/IP before it was
obvious that that was going to be the protocol of the future, and we tested
a bunch or higher-level protocols, some of which are still around and many
of which have died. (More or less the same time as C++ came along and it
before it was obvious that that was going to be a major language.)
