    Old school internet.

    Remember the good old days of the internet? When there was random shit all over the place? When it felt like the web was a place of discovery?

    When there was stuff like this?

    Actually, it pretty much is.

    The OP piece was classic and nostalgic. And there are no ads on it. Reminds me of how I sometimes get a little nostalgic about early Usenet.

    Mrs. Plug and I were at a restaurant, and there was a long line, so we shared a booth with two guys so we could speed things up. They were from Silicon Valley. They were talking about how great the Internet was, and we were saying that it’s OK and all…but whatever.
    They were talking about how all this information is available and it’s just gonna be so great.

    We had no idea that would it actually make people more stupid.

    My wife still maintains her Juno account for $20.00/month. She has no desire to get a free Gmail account. Weirdo.

    That literally happened in my (extended) family. The Y sound won.


    And yeah I remember those days. Many of my friends had funny webpages. Amazingly, this one is still up: https://aperson10.tripod.com/projectgarth.html

    Don't need to be that old for those. My roommates and I used them as coasters in the 90s. They doubled as throwing stars.

    We played the Star Trek drinking game too. There was a channel that showed 70s-80s reruns 24/7 so the Love Boat, CHiPs, Three's Company etc worked (almost) as well. I feel like kids today don't really know what reruns are.

    Heh. I'm almost positive I was using one of them to rip music off limewire in our college house in the late 90s. The landline would be jammed for days.

    Reruns were a staple in that house too now that you mention them. It was the dawn of cable with a "guide" on the screen so you could select a show from the guide and the cable box would automatically change the channel to that show at that time, all day, every day. We lost the remote so for the rest of our time in that house it was:

    Back to back episodes of Beverly Hills 90210; then
    Back to back episodes of Saved by the Bell; then
    Sportscenter for a few hours; then
    Back to back episodes of M*A*S*H*; then
    Late Night with David Letterman; then
    Conan O'Brien.

    Repeat.

    I think at the time we could get the PC 1 on a deal from the mother corp and so all the computer nerds at work were buying them even tho we were in OP , IMO the world would be a much different place if IBM hadn't shit the bed with the PC

    Ha! Yeah I had friends whose cable box was stuck on a channel because they let the batteries in the remote die and leak alkaline goo all over the circuit board. Stuck on one show sounds like one of Dante's Circles of Hell.

    Speaking of downloading music... Napster. That's old school internet. And kind of a turning point.

    Same. At a rough guess, I think I've probably microwaved a couple hundred AOL cd's.
