I remember searching through the windows 95 disc and finding this, it was like a little free present.

Oh yeah, wasn't Edie Brickell on there as well? Don't find fun extras like that much anymore.

Okay, kiddies, I bought my first computer, a Tandy 2000, in 1983. I remember using Word 4.2, Lotus 1-2-3, and some dial-up bbs.
My parents bought me one for my fourth birthday, which would have been 85. Really, I think my dad just wanted one for himself.

It was used and didn't last very long. So we got and one of the IBM 8086s not long after. I was pretty well-versed in DOS by the time I was eight.
Yes, I'm sure your dad mostly wanted it for himself -- it was marketed pretty much as a business computer and, at least new, was expensive. I still remember going into Radio Shack to ask some question, and the sales guy insisting that I must have a Tandy 1000. Seriously, he argued with me that of course I didn't have a 2000. <still shaking my head in amazement>

Re: What the Internet looked like in 1995

I loved Netscape and was kind of sad when they stopped making new releases. It had the little email icon in the corner, and when you got new mail it would make a "bonk" sound and show an exclamation mark next to the icon! I would get so excited because this Internet thing was so new to me! And I really enjoyed experimenting with HTML back then with one of my buddies (a fellow Trekkie)! Before that computer, we had one of those computers with the floppy discs and a dot matrix printer. I remember playing King's Quest IV. "Please insert disk 3." LOL! And before that one, my dad had this computer that only did one thing - it showed a Christmas Tree in letters or numbers or something. I was never sure why we had that computer? Anyway, that first video reminded me of this video:

Re: What the Internet looked like in 1995

I first touched the internet in 1996 in the school library when I was 16. The first website I went to was Michael Jackson's official website. <3 Ah memories! The first time I went into a chatroom(don't remember which), I used the screenname DaBorg16. *gigglefit*

And i also remember 90s/early 00s style websites and the worst one were the private ego pages you stumbled onto occasionally with their garish colors, embedded music and flashing background.. and people were so proud that they had pulled that off by themselves and were regarded as tech-geeks for being able to code HTML.

I loved that time!

I'm a little surprised no one has brought up Compuserve and those blazing fast 300-baud acoustic coupled modems.
