Back when we still believed that the internet would be a huge time saver.

Here come the dinosaurs!
You know, I can even send e-mail on the Internet?
Serious question: by force of habit I still write "e-mail" with the hyphen and I notice a lot of people don't. Is there a preferred way these days when, say, you're writing a grant proposal or other such stuff? I don't wanna sound like the people who still say "charge plate" when they pay with their debit card.

I write e-mail, it seems it's in my personal style dictionary that way. I can read it with both hyphen and condensed with no problem, but I think it sticks out more with the hyphen.
Maybe it will go to just being 'mail' if there's no more postal mail one day.

Yeah I hookup with my "kayaking buddies" all the time on the internet. *wink*
Given this site, I'll assume that the equation
"boat shape = vulva shape" is off right now.
I don't think gays like vulva shaped things that much.
To be fair to the gays, there's really only one vagina-shaped object it's guaranteed that they won't like.

Yes, that's right. Put YOUR payment information into MY AOL account.

Nobody likes to hang out with this dude because he never shuts the fuck up about his kayaking partners.

So what were you guys doing on AOL? I was chilling at the RedDragonInn. Sometimes over at ParaScope, where my mom's cool college-aged UFO-psycho friends hung out.
I had no kayaking buddies.
I was looking up anime pictures and posting on some stupid forum for weird websites that only dumb jerks ever posted in.
I honestly can't remember. We got the 10 day trial thing so I was able to get on usenet BBS and IRC for ten days from the library at school but as far as AOL itself went, I really can't think of a thing. I remember checking out the Nickelodeon channel, and Dinosaurs became boring.
Miss Henson's 6th grade class
Baiting white supremacists, making fun of Marilyn Manson fans, desperately trolling for cyber from people who probably had a Y-chromosome.
I was in music message boards (Mostly GNR, Metallica, and RHCP) having inane arguments with fellow idiots. Later on made attempts to find "friends" in chat rooms.

That must have been some kind of turbo, souped-up machine, my mom's Windows 95 computer had wobbly windows and images that loaded one by one in the browser.
It was mostly okay on Windows only, but when you went on the browser it was like someone hit the brakes.

There is now an entire generation that has never heard the godlike voice of the commercial recap guy whose sole purpose was to quickly and repeatedly read a 1-800 number.

Why did you put this off until the day of the game, you jackass?
|Hooker - 2015-01-08 |
Of course, then there's my personal favourite: live chat! That's how I met my kayaking buddies. In fact, let me log on right now.
*connecting to AOL.net*

Can AOL become an albatross around TimeWarner's neck to the point that TW essentially rips the AOL name off its corporate branding two years after a merger?
It can? Wow, so versatile! I wonder what AOL can do with WCW and Netscape!

Why was AOL special anyway? Like, you'd always see advertisements with "AOL KEYWORD:" included in them.
The only experience I ever had with the service was the piles upon piles of free trial discs we got in the mail from them, before we ever had a computer, much less the means to access the internet with one.
