Back when I was in grade school, probably about 15 years ago now, we used to install Bonzai buddy on all the library computers and make it say shit on full volume. Was great times.
I remember he used to sing Daisy Bell, a bicycle built for two, as well.
Brings back some memories.
I don't know if this is what you mean, but I have one

When i was about 12 i was gifted my first laptop. Being the horny teen i was i searched for porn. Clicked a google link which gave me a virus which would open meatspin in a new unclosable window. I got paranoid about my parents finding it so i stepped on the latop when it was cllsed and threw it in the trash. This legitimately happened.

You fight Kain and he jumps into some portal before you can kill him. You go after him and meet some elder who tells you your destiny is about to begin or something.

who made that fucking template?
Someone with Parkinson's apparently
When I was a kid I was really intrigued by computers since the first time I used one. I've made so many mistakes and back then I was too scared to tell someone I got viruses on the computer. That's how I learned how to use Google. At the time YouTube was just acquired by Google and I quickly found how useful that was too. If I wasn't spending all day playing runescape I was learning how to pirate games, use visual basic, learn about how Windows works and how to make it faster, and a whole bunch of other stuff I can't remember.

One of my bigger accomplishments was making a working runescape private server anyone could join, I was about 11 or 12 at the time. I made YouTube videos on how I did it, it ended up getting 600k views before jagex filed a copyright claim. That was pretty cool to say I made a video that 600,000 people have seen when I was only 13 years old
