Man, back in the old days, the Internet was a precious treasure, mined in finite amounts from a hole in the ground by Franciscan monks. It was measured in "hours".

My God. That was 15 whole years ago.

You want to see a grainy picture of counselor Troy's head awkwardly pasted on a generic playboy model's body? You just click here and it's done! Well not really, you have to wait 15 minutes for it to load...

Psht, no one with a COMPUTER could need America Online!
Cleaner82 - 2010-02-04
No, no look -- I already bought the goddamn thing, now I need to buy MORE?

"My friend told me I needed America Online. I said, why? I already have a computer!"

Stars for Webcrawler.

Computers have internet already? Tell me more.

AOL/Time-Warner risked their businesses on the idea that middle America wouldn't ever get the hang of domain names.

I know, I'm surprised they failed too.
HarrietTubmanPI - 2010-02-04
Most of middle america still doesn't. My parents still search google for "domain.com" as a search term.

revdrew - 2010-02-04
My mom still does that and she's known better for years.

She also doesn't seem to grasp that keeping dozens of browser tabs open at the same time will slow her crappy system to a halt, no matter how many times I tell her.

RockBolt - 2010-02-04
I know far too many people that search for 'google' on the built in google search bar

pastorofmuppets - 2010-02-04
I do all of those things, but the reason is that I'm extremely lazy.

Ah, fond memories of waiting 20 seconds for a porn jpg to load and using the chat rooms to try and meet chicks. A/S/L?

It was like a universe of new possibilities for 13-year old me. Until we got our first bill and my parents canceled the service.

exar_kun - 2010-02-04
I remember spending hours just going through the various chat rooms on Compuserve just trying to locate another person.
pastorofmuppets - 2010-02-04
There were lots of people on AOL chat rooms, but you couldn't go into one without a ton of IMs asking about a/s/l (which I think is a kind of mainframe?) and "cybering," whatever that is.

pastorofmuppets - 2010-02-04
Wait a minute..."La Loco"....as in xXxLaLoco4059? Oh man, it's been a while! No, I still don't have an a/s/l. Most of my stuff I do on a MacBook.

A whole TEN. Awesome!

Back when I was a kid I used to look at PoE on AOL dial-up.
