    Geocities. and downloading off Napster with a 56k modem and the connection would get interrupted so you had to start the three hour process all over again for just one single music track.

    I remember Yahoo auctions, where they let you sell just about anything, and as far as I remember there were no listing fees. I made my first online cash there selling cigarettes and tobacco from Spain to buyers in the UK where cigs were more expensive.

    ETA: And "under construction" pages that had dozens of moving gifs plastered all over them.

    And paying almost $40 for my first domain.

    I remember when javascript came out you would paste this code in the browser
    javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.getElementsByTagName("img"); DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=(Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5)+'px'; DIS.top=(Math.cos(R*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5)+'px'}R++}se tInterval('A()',5); void(0);
    And then images start flying around the screen. My teacher laughed hysterically when she saw what I was doing.

    I remember Gopher, Archie, Jughead, and Veronica, 96 baud modems, and Mosaic (which became Netscape, which became Mozilla) was a pipe dream that someday promised to show <GASP> images on the web!! That was as far out there as those little pads the Yeomen on Star Trek would hand Captain Kirk for him to sign off on something with.

    At the time, it was all text based, Bulletin Boards, and USENET. I cannot even imagine what will be common place in 20 years.

    I've been in the tech world since the Hollerith card/keypunching days, and I am amazed each year. Seriously, in a few decades you will be able to print out a car. Crazy shit coming.
