I had Compuserve back in the day. The Compuserve world was so tight I thought that was all the internet was, a bunch of chat rooms on every subject you could think of and email. One day, I somehow busted out and was in the wild world of the internet universe, which was pretty ugly-looking then. Mostly text-based sites with random gifs and jpegs thrown around. I was learning html when the revelation of table-based layouts came! How exciting!! Wouldn't be caught dead using tables for layout now...

I can also hear the dial-up modem sound in my head as if it was actually happening. So glad that's over.

AOL did a great job of making their customers think they were surfing a different Internet than everybody else. To this day, I still know someone that uses them. They are afraid that if they leave, they will "lose all the cool stuff" they get with AOL (mainly referring to the main page and links). I explained that anyone can access the AOL page, but they still feel that their Internet is different from mine...

I bet his "old" kayaking buddies are extremely jealous and a little bit hurt about his excitement over his "new" kayaking buddies.

People used to have a limited amount of time they could go online, before they had to pay more?

lol 'free' trial. Once that program is installed you need a freaking compsci degree to uninstall it.

They even give you a floppy. Is AOL still at it? I could look it up (not as quickly as AOL apparently connected in 1995), but it's strange that I'm not even sure AOL is even in business. How the mighty have fallen.

@thebigsmoke- no no no- the ratio goes 5 minutes connecting through phone line, 20 minutes waiting for pages to load, 5 minutes buying flowers, plane tickets, and looking up dinosaurs and then 9 hours 30 minutes surfing porn. Ballgame still missed.

First 5 minutes of free 10 hour trial spent buying flowers, plane tickets, and looking up dinosaurs, next 9 hours and 55 minutes surfing porn. Ballgame missed.

2 things blew my mind

"10 free hours!"- wow now people are using that in a day (most people probably more)

and my own personal thought of "I can't believe this started in my lifetime."

"Yep those were the days."

Yep, those were the days... when you were six! lol (just yankin' your chain, buddy) That link brings back memories, I still have a couple of old 56k modems laying around (and even a 28.8k! wow!).

@HG

Fantasy sports has been around since the 1950s, possibly earlier too.
