I remember in 95 I ran my parents phone bill up to $1200. The local number was always busy and I was smart to find a number that was never busy. It just so happened to be long distance.

Speaking of old time email. I still use my Juno email from 1992.

You guys are hilarious.

No, AOL is like any other website like Facebook or Netflix or WizardofVegas. You can access it using hi-speed.

Good to hear. I haven't been able to log in to AOL for ~20 years
This feeling is heavy, makes my body ache and I'm ready; To fall into the sky and I see now, the reason why. My heart is heavy, takes me to a place I can't breathe. Only then I know why I see the warning sign.

Yeah THAT's the one EvenBob. Thanks for THAT memory...NOT!

ya know I think that horrible tone, short circuits people brains and makes them goofy. I'd be willing to bet that quite a few members of this site, used that old dial up and that explains quite a bit about our membership. :)

Personally I think you are all being unpatriotic by not using a service with the word "America" in it.

Perhaps you guys would be happier if it was COL (China Online) since you all buy stuff made in China.

Are you talking about that Asian guy I 'met' the other night? He said he was born (made) in Colorado. ??? :/

You're not alone. My primary email accounts are AOL. Been there since 1995.My first PC was a Packard Bell with a whopping 1.3 gig hard drive!



Oh my!! You must be young. I remember paying $800 for my first hard drive. A whopping 5mb.

BTW, I still have an AOL email account and check it daily.

I remember muffling the modem screeches so it wouldn't wake up my parents as I logged onto Starcraft.
