Click mean something else back then? Pretty sure there wasn't a mouse back then, all DOS prompts and shit like dir
'95? Nah, there were mice then. I remember Windows 95 being a pretty big deal when it came out.
I think the AOL for DOS was through Playnet but by 1995 it was pretty much click click click. I missed the joke. Never played Counterstrike and somehow on this site. Counterstrike pays for this right?
Also I looked it up, the mouse has been around for a lot longer than we thought
The SNES mouse predates this ad. (it was also the first mouse I ever used).
I remember Atari computers having mice. They also RAM on cartridges.
Yes I am completely wrong, how could I have thought mice weren't invented by 1995 when I had used one then, woe is me.

Are those portals I see at 0:12?

0:19 is my all time favorite bad font, what is it called?
Yeah, I remember that discussion about fonts we were having a while ago. Somebody should invent an app where you can scan a font and it'll tell you what it is. That would be nice. I liked the one where all the letters were covered in snow.
I tried to find it online. It's VERY similar to 'pecos' but it's not exactly the same.

10 FREE HOURS!
We'd get these all the time. I'm sure there's several somewhere in my parents' basement. I was like 13 or so, but the first thing I did was check to see if there was a Playboy.com. There was. 10 hours well spent.
Jet Bin Fever
The thing is, after this business with Net Neutrality, we could see a return to those types of service plans. Hooray!
Sweet. 10 hours of trying to get a boner by imagining drew barrymore's boobs from 1994 here I come!
Heh.. yeah in my case it was just like, the cover of the issue and information on how to subscribe, nothing more. When I was a kid though, playboy magazines were covered in their plastic housing by the same big black square that covered all the dirtier magazines.
I discovered usenet maybe a year later, for better or worse.

that final image is really representative of AOL
a gateway into a hellish dimension ruled by the eye in a pyramid

There are roughly 2.5 million people still paying for and using America Online dial up.
by "digital" I meant "online." I also worked at a theatre and they went digital, also meaning that my experience as a projectionist is, for the most part, just some arcane skill I once learned, and not a career anymore.

Man, the horror of Netscape employees when they learned that THIS company was acquiring them. Although they did get to cash out so fuck it.

I have a copy of 2.5, from when AOL came on a disk.
