    Have a look at this website I found.

    http://www.angelfire.com/oh/quotations/

    Remember the days when this was still acceptable

    What blows my mid is that this website has 400k + on the hitcounter.

    But the site looks like Crap.

    Reminds me of my first webpage...F#ck I was so proud of myself
    Stuffed it Full of banner, Thiking I will be the next dotcom milionair...

    No, you are right. Al Gore invented the internet around 1990. The 80s did not have http

    before www, the internet was only a command line network, primitive protocols, something like ssh, ftp, and things like this.
    anyway, I remember that in 1996 I have brought my first PC, and I was a proud owner of MS-DOS. After a while Microsoft launched Windows 3.11 .... so I figured why my computer has a mouse.

    Where there is money baby
    Angelfire was really popular in the late nineties.. I think it allowed anyone to create a website without having a domain or webhosting (I could be wrong), so thousands of people created their webpages on that platform..

    I started off with MS-DOS as well.. Those were the days when the PC had floppy drive, 256 MB of hard disk could hold all your data and few MBs of RAM was all you needed..

    more like less than 40k hits.. plus.. they are not unique hits.. If you refresh it will keep on counting.

    I used to make websites back in the day with word 97 hehe. Pretty close to that one.

    My first was a Commodore 64!

    Oh and I was special - I had the optional cassette tape external drive to store all my pong-type programs I wrote!!

    I remember the casette nightmare too, crazy sounds, and if the cassette was a little old, you waited about 20 minutes to load for nothing .....

    The 64 datacassette rocked, you could "crack" any program or game using your home stereo system if you had a dual tape player. Many nights were spent in the early 80's listeng to data tones screeching out of the home amp. :)

    Rapidshare was sending a tape overseas by post and waiting 3 weeks for it to turn up.. Dialing in to an international BBS to transfer at 300baud would of cost hundres.

    Yes them were the days indeed.

    Standard on the 90's websites;

    Hitcounter
    Flashy Gif animations that give you seizures plastered all over the page.
    Clipart
    3d text (preverbally rotating)
    midi background music
    And last but not least a single meta tag that is 3 pages long saying;

    keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword,keyword, get keyword here, keyword keyword.

    I remember my first computer I was given,

    Intel 286 @ 20 or maybe 33 mhz with 2MB RAM and a 20MB HDD.

    The first computer I purchased myself I was 13 and I paid $1800 for a toshiba Intel DX100mhz with 16mb ram and 500mb hdd and something like a 12 inch black and white screen. I was SO chuffed with my laptop that I purchased with my own money washing cars and doing odd jobs for like 2 years. I was the sh*t !
