Crappy Dial Up Modem, later crappy but at least a bit faster ISDN
Ugly websites but at least they weren't filled with videos, sounds and other useless crap
Audiogalaxy and me hating the Crappy Dial Up Modem because they had so many Live Bootlegs and i wanted them all.
Not as much advertisements on websites as today
Stupid AOL and all the problems we had with those stupid idiots.
Online gaming was nearly not possible
extremely high costs because there was no flatrate
Me using the Internet only 3-4 times in the week and maybe 1-2 hours a day. Today it's more like 24/7
What i fondly remember: When we got DSL with a Flatrate (about 10 years ago). Damn, the 1Mbit thing was FAAAAAAST, i filled my hard drive in a week
with music, stuff for games and played Counter-Strike for so many hours
And the Dial Up Sound was horrible, i was great when we got ISDN, it was silent.
I'm glad those days are over and just a fading memory.
