The internet kicked ass back in the early 90s up to around turn of the millennium
(I'd say up to around 2004). It was a lot easier to establish and maintain friendships
with complete strangers; hell, I'm still friends with the majority of the people I met
back then. Everything was primarily text-based, it was magical. Everyone was
always thrilled to share with one another and there weren't too many faggots. Most
everyone was a programmer or at least versed in *nix based operating systems well
enough to dial up and connect to the IRC server.
I think one of the biggest differences is that being a nerd wasn't socially acceptable
and was frowned upon. So, most people and businesses kept away from technology
and the netz for the most part. The biggest plus was that the girls who frequented
the IRC servers (DALnet, EFNet, UnderNet, were the only ones at the time if I'm
remembering correctly) weren't attention seeking whores. They were actually
interesting, had hobbies, and possessed an above average intellect.
Shit got watered down as soon as AOL came onto the scene though. That's when
the influx of over-entitled faggots started pouring onto the net and into IRC
channels. The internet fucking blows now, but looking back I don't think there was
really anything that anyone could have done to mitigate what happened.

for the government to track you and companies to data mine and advertise at you.
And like that anon said, the normies don't even care. They have to put their fucking
face and name all over everything. I miss when the Internet was more anonymous
and shadowry, more about gathering and sharing information with each other, not
about self-aggrandizement and lets face it -- getting laid. Most normies have turned
the Internet into "push button, receive sex!" and it's another thing contributing to
the death of everyone's privacy.

Yeah exactly. I have a best friend who talks about this all the time he used to be
really into computer programming and was making websites when he was a kid, we
had a DBZ fansite back in the 90s! Every time anyone does anything stupid online
he goes "I miss when you actually had to TRY and KNOW how to get online." His job
now is writing social media for companies... he hates the Internet.
Yeah that's what I'm talking about. I think it still messes with me. I'm sort of old and
set in my ways, for example I'm used to "there are no girls on the Internet" and
when it was "weird" to talk to girls you didn't know in real life when you're online.
Now we have Tinder. People meet online, click, click, exchange STDs. It still baffles
me. I think it effects what little game I have too, because I'd rather talk to a girl in
real life and I think I get penalized for it when competing with all the guys hitting
her up online with their "push button , receive pussy" attitudes.
Seriously Chad ruined the Internet too. I remember my Chad friends a couple years
ago. "Dude... there are chicks on Facebook... REAL girls! I'm getting on that shit

Anyone else feel like the world got way stranger, and worse overall after 2006 or
so? I feel like the Internet has played a big part in this, but it's hard for me to put
into words.
It seems like no one can separate reality from Internet anymore, and the Internet is
now just a extension of real life. I see people around me acting crazier and, dare I
say, more like an autistic person, even normalfags.
Internet memes have no substance now either, and they're way too forced and
common whereas they used to be little inside jokes on the old Internet that almost
no one knew about and never used in real life.
I don't even know if I'm even typing anything coherent right now, but this is a big
part of how I feel now. I've felt this way ever since, I think, 2011.
What about it? Has the world gone insane, or have I?

Archive everything you love. They say that nothing on the internet disappears, but

Late 90s up to the mid 00s kicked a lot of arse on the Internet.
I had sporadic access from 1995-2001.
Most of my Internetting was done during free time at school. Up until 2000 the
whole school shared a dial-up connection, so it was epically slow around lunchtime.
My main search engine at the time was Yahoo!
I found all kinds of stuff, some of which got blocked by the filters.
Around 2000 the school upgraded to a shiny broadband connection. I discovered

new things like and Yahoo Clubs.

I also switched to Google as my main search engine.
But outside of school my Internet access was extremely patchy, I was only able to
get online at cybercafes (which have pretty much died here in the UK but still seem
to be a thing in mainland Europe)
That all changed in 2001 when we got a home PC and Internet so I could get online
pretty much whenever.
That's when I got into IRC and warez.
I remember shit like:
>Launchcast (pre and post Yahoo! ownership)
>Hotmail pre-Microsoft
>Ebay when you could still get bargains
In a way I do miss those days, it was like being a pioneer in the Old West, no
normies clogging shit up with Facebook and crap and you actually had to search for
interesting stuff, none of that SEO crap.

I think what will happen is that we'll still miss those early years, but we won't really
remember WHAT we miss other than the vibe it had. I've noticed in every single
nostalgia thread, there are people who -myself included- are really fuzzy in terms of
what they remember about the internet before 2010ish. It's like we're hit with so
much information now that our memories are less like a hard drive, and more like
RAM. It going to be even worse for people who are in their early teens or younger
since their whole lives on the internet (and much outside of it) are going to be
constantly bombarded with replaceable things almost from the outset; they'll never
use a site without using their real info (I say this with the expectations that there
will be laws that restrict sites like ours here), they'll never know the community of
forums where everyone is a familiar stranger, they'll never know using forums that
aren't all about getting likes/upvotes rather than simply posting cool/funny shit...

Man, I'm the guy earlier in the thread that posted about how he used to talk to his
gf all the time on MSN Messenger. Your post just reminded me of this:

online (also we were able to use the phone way more when her house got a second

I really was bummed since I just wanted to see what the last thing that we sent to
each other on it. Wouldn't have done any good, and it was probably nothing too
special like "see you at school tomorrow!", but I'd still have loved to know.

When it comes to websites and stuff, I have no idea what a current 9 year old would
make memories on. Facebook probably, but will Facebook ever stop being a thing?
Same for Youtube, but these are so generic, wide-spread.. these aren't websites
with personality.
I guess in a decade plenty of young adults will remember all the nights they've
spent playing Minecraft, the whole minecraft hype period (from 2010 to 2013 we
could say, now it's slowing down) must appear like ages to them, it will be the lifedefining time for them, the period that they will think off when they think "playing
games when I was young". I'm 23 and I feel like Minecraft came out 2 years ago or
something, when I think about my golden period it's stuff like Diablo 2 that comes
out, seems like I played that shit for years and years but it was probably 3-4 years
max if I took the time to calculate and check.

WinMX was so good. One strong memory I have is of discovering one user with an
amazing assortment of pornography, but all the filenames seemed to be random
characters (could have been Japanese or something, I guess) - so I'd start to
download a video, copy and paste the file while downloading to get a preview, and
decide whether to continue. One file was of this really cute Japanese girl having
giant enema after giant enema put into her, it was amazing... I left it overnight,
woke up horny and excited to see more of (lel) the clip, only to find out that they
inject these sea eels into her or something. Was so disgusted and ashamed. So
upset that they'd ruined this scene with such a cute girl.

This is my point, if an ISP were running their own moderated chatroom, they'd have
their own system in place to control who was in there, rather than sending letters
letter on. It wouldn't help the ISP to be able to say "We sent him a letter afterward!"
if they were running a chatroom where some guy was posting links to CP. If, as you
said, they were IRC channels - then there would have been moderators who'd be
able to ban people, or even automate bans using a script. It just doesn't seem
believable that they'd bother sending out letters to people for swearing. Perhaps
your parents TOLD you they received a letter, but never actually did?

I still remember the first porn video I ever watched, and it was thanks to Limewire.
I've never been able to find it since, and it saddens me.
>Video wasn't amateur, but the girl wasn't a pornstar as far as I know
>Redhead, maybe shoulder length hair
>Creampied in the end, camera focuses on the cum leaking out, and the cum
splattered/plastered in her red pussy hair
>She laughs/smiles/something like that
That shot of cum leaking out has been ingrained in my head forever.

Tried googling, got nothing. Also had Asteroids, the one with the line drawings of
tanks (pretty sure it was called Tank but idr), one called Alien that was basically the
same as Galaga but lower quality and had an array of big gray blocks in the center
to manoeuvre around, a bunch of others
I forget the name of that but who else /namcomuseum/ here? Bosconian and Rally X
2 were my shit, the DS port was pretty good
I've still never gotten past level 25 of Galaga, feelsbadman.jog

beause the moms or sisters had crazy proportions. Wish I could go back and play all
those again and see how they hold up today as fap bait

Old online games had a special, almost comfy feel to them. I remember playing
Counterstrike, Halo 1 on PC and lots of flash games online.
It's just not the same. Video games aren't as enjoyable. Partly because I'm older,
and partly because they've gotten too big and everything is either a triple A
platinum 10/10 megahit that sold 5 million+ copies or it's some garbage 2D indie
It makes me sad that games have to be ultra realistic and whatnot anymore.
Nothing can just be made for fun.
Also, Putfile. I remember so many AMVs on there.

>not appreciating the 2000s

Fucking hell guys, use your brains. Gen Y/kids born after 1990 or so are the 'handme-down' generation, our older siblings shared with us all the great shit of the 90s
and possibly late 80s, we got born into an age where controversial shit like South
Park, Jackass, late 90s-early 2000s WWF, Eminem and shit of the like was popular
which means we never had to fight our parents over what we enjoyed cause it had
already been done and they were nullifed, also, we're old enough to be able to
utilize the gift of the internet to find cool movies, literature and shows of the past
due to the second hand information we got from the pre-internet generation, the
kids before us just got what they were given and got given whatever was defined as
cool/popular by corporations or Chads and couldn't deeply explore other
hobbies/interests, and the kids who are kids now are raised in a fucking bubble
where all that matters is social media and they're too young to have been born in a
time where there was anything important other than the internet and where there's
no youth culture at all. Mid-to-late 90s kids are easily the luckiest out of the postbaby boomer generations. Prove me wrong.

oh man. fuq this thread. it's killing me so much right now.
i was in high school in the early 2000's and the internet was a small golden age in
itself. everyone had their virtual community that somewhat claimed their identities.
ebaums world, something awful, new grounds, etc. i was mostly a loner/loser, but
one day i stumbled upon liquid generation. heh, i sort tried to make it cool among
my friends, as i wanted my new pet site to be accepted, but it was always on the
sidelines. in hindsight i suppose this was good, because it became my
place to go to.
as people have said in this thread, the internet was such a huge place back then.
even at the hurr durr 'dawn of the millennium and information' a lot of shit was still
word of mouth. that random site, that one picture, etc... again, before google,
before reverse image search (at least that i knew of at that age), you had to scour
the net for long periods of time to find shit. the shining light times where when
some random person at school was like, 'ya nig, i remember that link, it's right here.
what you stressin' out about?" those moments made my day.
i do remember having a myspace, but i did not use it all that much other than to
keep in touch with my friends who i saw every day at school anyway or to find
random music.

gaming demo's were all the rage. too broke to afford much anyway. get all freakin'
excited for a demo of a game, start the dl, have it run for 2+ hours only to have it
slow down and eventually time out and have to start again.
anyone play swat 3? my friends and i got the online stuff sorted out and played
paintball mode multiplayer. sounds lame now, but man....actually felt like i
connected with my friend even more lol. stupid shit like play hid and
many hours on that game.
i liked exploring different kinds of rap, so i spent hours on kazaa searching for rap
from different countries. eventually ran
so much of the internet was getting lost and feeling like life was alright. family
issues, no friend, blah blah blah, off and on throughout my day i could escape to
someplace else. i would wonder. no one could tell me otherwise.
back then, the net was just another thing i guess. ya it was special, but not special,
ya know? now it feels like every swinging dick and their brother is on it HAY LOOK AT
ME! i've taken breaks from facebook (and most recently deleted it) and people get
all annoyed like "how we gonna communicate?"
a big philosophical question is "if you had a time machine, what would you use it
for?" as much i hated high school and that period of my life, i'd give just about
anything to relieve even a day back then. when things were more simple.
anyway.....i'm done.

That's what I came to this thread for.
Also, does anybody remember the Cow & Chicken game on the cartoon network site
where you had to get people on the school bus and avoid Red's bus? Was thinking
about it the other day. I wonder if it still exists somewhere

and depending on luck as I was too dumb and inpatient to beat the game
I still have the CD should try beating it for real this time.
