Always nice to have these flashbacks.. in 95 i was 20 years old though not much into computers since i didn't have one at home.

It was not until my mid 20s that i actually got one but in the meantime i used one at friends and the university computer room to get online and check stuff out. The amount of information readily available was insane (and i didn't even start to look for porn!).

I remember how Netscape for a time utterly kicked Microsofts ass, how annoying it was to have an AOL CD in nearly every magazine you bought and sometimes just there in your mailbox and what a 56k modem sounded (one of the most vile sounds ever).
They even had those AOL CDs in Germany?
