    A friend of mine had the contract from AOL to send those discs out, it went on well into the 2000's. He made so much money off that shit it wasn't funny. Well okay it was pretty funny.

    A bit too old school. That’s phone freak shit.

    Ahhh nostalgia.

    But to be honest the tech pisses me off lately. I think it’s AI bullshit. Searches can’t find what they should
    I’ve just decided to be a middle aged somewhat depressed somewhat anxious fucktard until the end.

    Thinking back to the Napster then Limewire days, anyone else ever get on CD sharing trees from from something like an AOL chatroom using those programs? Roommate was a big Deadhead and would rip a show offline from another 'Head or one of those services then burn 10 copies of it and send it out to the first people on the tree. A few weeks later after the tree was started and that show had made its rounds getting burned over and over again his name would pop back up on the next one and a box full of CDs would show up on the porch with 10 other shows on them. Kinda cool actually how it worked.

    There was a time. late 90s when I was fairly addicted to Fighter Ace.


    Playing on a 96 Baud Modem was a bit frustrating but I made due.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    My first modem was a 14.4k. I missed out on the 2600 baud days. I remember it actually taking a few hours to figure out how to setup the TCP/IP stuff to get connected to the internet. After I figured it out I thought I was a really techie!

    My parents had a 2600 to dial into the mainframe at UVM. My mom put together a Heathkit dumb terminal. Hunt the Wumpus ftw.

    Ok, it couldn't have been 2600. They weren't out yet. 800? 1200?

    I have a Juno Account also- just for email though- junk and sign ups that will spam. I pay like $20 for the year just for more storage since I've had it for like 20 some years... Sounds like she is still paying for dial up internet or something at that rate... Switch over to one of the 2 premium email only offerings...

    What year did ceiling cat stop watching me masturbate?

    In around ‘89 or ‘90 some friends of mine had an ‘online party’ (wasn’t called that, I don’t remember what it was called?), where they had cameras and monitors live-streaming their party, and we watched a party in San Francisco. The buffering was horrendous, but it was so insanely futuristic. It was a bunch of artists and computer science people. Lots of mushrooms, we had a stripped 12’ foot satellite dish that we put on hundreds of dollars worth of briquettes, and made a stir fry for 150 people.
    I got laid inside of a 1000 gallon (?) empty milk tank, we found out later that there were microphones, but no cameras. (There was a bed, lights, etc, though).
    They apparently looped the sound through delay pedals and stuff like that, and jammed to it.
    I was clueless as to what it all meant, but I felt like I was participating in the future. It was at an ex-farm south of Syracuse called The Creamery.

    It’s my memory, and you can’t beat it out of me.
    Believe me, I have tried.
