"Wow! This is a powerful computer!"

486 with DX66 Processor

400MB Hard Drive

4MB RAM.

So... Doom or Quake wasn't out in 1990. It wasn't fast enough for porn. And there weren't many users so there wasn't much in the way of forums.

...just out of curiousity, what the hell did people do with the internet in 1990?

EDIT: Netscape!?

@believer258: Oh netscape. Why did they ever stop updating you.

I think the internet was mainly smaller chatrooms... And a way to download Nethack.

I'll hop right on to Netscape and send some "E-Mails" telling everybody about how America Online's "keyword" system makes surfing the web fun AND easy!

Thanks to America Online, I can get weather updates, sports scores, and news about my favorite new shows, like Friends and The X-Files! I can even play games like Checkers and Hearts with people around the globe!

That first video is totally not from 1990, more like 1994...that kind of internet didn't exist back then. Netscape wasn't even a company in 90. Man, these vids bring you back...

That sounds like that new thing they have at the library. I think they call it a supersearch. Apparently you can search ALL the libraries in your area for a book you want to check out.

The whole concept of this inter-web-net thingie scares and confuses me. I'm going back to watching the man from uncle on my black and white tv.

I totally forgot AOL charged you by hours.

Also I found a AOL 1997 disc at my job last year, someone threw it in the hole where the napkin dispenser is placed.

You kids today and you're newfangled internets. Back in my day we didn't have pictures or sound and you had one color choice; green.

The thing that really gets me is the last tidbit the news announcer says. "...the 20 cents [newspaper] street edition." That's up there with 99¢ a gallon gasoline. Of course I think 2600 video games cost something like $35. That would be about $89 today...actually 20¢ is equal to 50¢ according to the US Inflation calculator, so I guess it's more my perception than what I'm paying in the larger scheme of things. Gas is still about a buck more expensive than it was back then though even with inflation figured in.

The Giant Bomb forums are meant to be a place of discussion, not a video gallery. Just posting a few videos and then telling everyone else to post a bunch of videos does not a discussion make. This thread is YouTube spam and as such violates the forum rules. I'm locking this.

Kayaking friends.
