The web is just barely in its mid-20s, yet so much has changed. Back in 1997, Wambooli’s Home page looked as you see above.

I missed a bill payment. It’s my fault: I tried to log into the utility’s website, but it was unreachable. I figured it was a hiccup and I’d check back later. The problem: The website hasn’t been available for weeks. Is it me?
