Things from dial-up era You can found on Your HD , /g/. A.K.A proof-you-are-more-than-12-here thread.
See? SEE? THIS is why I shitpost in nostalgia threads. It leads to fucking ageism. Obviously on 4chan you have to be 18 but keep doing this and you'll disown everyone below your made up age ladder. It doesn't matter if you don't know old bullshit deprecated tech because it isn't used anymore.
Eeeech... 4chan gets into theme and works soooo fast for mid-90's now...
1) Find a dictionary
2) find a word : "joke"
WoW was hard to play on dial-up but I managed it.
Feels weird to post this in a "museum" thread given how much it felt like the epitome of novelty back when it came out.
We played MUDs (not Legend) back in the 90's - our school, and an university nearby (with free terminals on theirs corridors - a mecca of all geeks of my town) provided only text UNIX terminals on old PC's. If the net traffic is small You may ask for an access to Win 3.11 machine. Memories.
Oh and there was a (short-lived) commercial venture what allows customers to play Quake I on this (probably it wasn't ortodoxic legal). Remember these promises and expectations?

My first hard drive I think, it's been too long, i had Ubuntu on it the last time I checked.
I can't remember it came with windows 98 on it. I forgot why i put Ubuntu on it. Probably to try and make a media center pc, but then realized the drive would barely hold a few movies, back when I was drinking.
With current max bandwith speeds, a realistically high end connection would take a healthy 40 years to download all that shit. A reasonable estimate would be 10-12 years, if you factor in predictable estimates based on past technological progress.
Those speeds are from around the year 2000, so it would have only took a little less than 40 years.
I've taken too much adderall and stayed up too long. Ive lost my ability to recall vocabulary. I'm coming down too :(
Did anyone manage to archive bonus.com (the actual games hosted on there?)
Omy, I was looking for this program for SO LONG.. only thing I rememberd as a kid was the stoplights on the right, moving visuals and brown/yellow color (probably from our bad CRT)... Thanks :D
Had this back in the day when you faggots were hanging in your dads ballsack.
Sco, nice. Back when I did small business IT consulting about 15 years ago, a good portion of doctors offices ran this software called medical manager, which came with its own SCO server.
Many faps were had when playing this game. You always played hard though so you could bust that well deserved nut
A floppy disk could store up to about 5-10 porn pictures
Does anyone remember a game called WinAttack? It was a 2D game with the crudest graphics (genuinely looked like it was made in mspaint) where you flew a plane and bombed stuff and shot helicopters down
I used to play it on my dad's windows 98 computer ages ago, but I can't find anything about it on the internet. There was another game called WinPlex and a couple more
>(genuinely looked like it was made in mspaint)
You mean Paintbrush?
brb trying to find some more dank 90s memes, i still have them in there somewhere.
My dialup era memories consist of playing Quake, Asheron's Call, countless 300in1 shareware CD, AOL trial CDs and returning games to the store after they're installed on my PC.
>returning games to the store after they're installed on my PC.
never tried that, but i did loan a few games from a library and kept using the installed copy when upon returning
