Dr John - this is from April of 1998. It's been around...

Dammit, I'm always seven years behind the times. I would've noticed the date, but Netscape 3 didn't display it properly for some reason.

Welcome to the internets.

Mosaic did the same thing to me -- that means if I upgrade to Netscape it won't help. I can put off that purchase of an 50MB disk for now.

This can't be from 1998, where are the embedded MIDI files, where are the multiple out of sync flashing widgets?

Still, pretty clever and news to me or maybe I knew it once and forgot about it.

Welcome back to the internets, crash.

Guys metafilter did not even *exist* in 1998. So how are you even typing those comments?

Whenever I see a Radio Shack at a mall, I always stop in and purchase the entire stock of 4"x6" predrilled PC boards (Radio Shack #276-147A). Usually, I can find at least one or two on the wall. If not, then there is a strong chance that Karl Lunt has visited the store recently, since he and I seem to clean out the stock of these all around the north end of Lake Washington, which is in the Seattle area.

Ah... the Internet. Amazing what they've done with the place since 1998.

You can do anything at Zombo Com... anything at all.

Damn. No wonder those things are always out of stock around here.

Oh yikes.

We've probably forgotton more websites than Google remembers.

*ahem*...Anyone have the link for the exacting woman named Mary that was looking for a mate who had to follow extremely granular instructions to meet her?

Did she ever find anyone?

You mean Gentle Mary? She's still around, but her focus has changed a bit...

I thought this was cool, and hadn't seen it, and have been using the internets since pre-Mosaic days.

grouse, maybe you and jonson were using different internets.
