For maximum retro, why not read olduse.net in a terminal from the period?

This screenshot is Usenet on an Apple II. Well, as emulated by xscreensaver, but the video artifacts, slow updates, and background snow make it seem very real when I'm using it to read about the continuing complications of the first Space Shuttle launch.

If you have an old terminal, hook it up to something and use it to read olduse.net, and post a picture!
