Well gee Chad, the future sure looks swell!
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...
thanks Sam Shepard
Psht, no one with a COMPUTER could need America Online!
"My friend told me I needed America Online. I said, why? I already have a computer!"
Stars for Webcrawler.
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.
I do all of those things, but the reason is that I'm extremely lazy.
AOL? MORE LIKE AOHELL! LOL. Uh, that's "Laughing Out Loud" to you newbie "lusers".

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?
I remember spending hours just going through the various chat rooms on Compuserve just trying to locate another person.
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.
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.
TEN FREE HOURS.
A whole TEN. Awesome!
Back when I was a kid I used to look at PoE on AOL dial-up.
