    damn I just got a flashback to getting AOL discs in the mail like 3x a month

    when I was a kid AOL chatrooms were the shit....if you had a screenname with only 3 letters IE azX, you were a fucking GOD because they were so rare/taken. or omg, if you had a screenname that was simply a cool word, IE "cereal" people would LOSE THEIR SHIT in chatrooms. You could sell the screenname for thousands of dollars.

    The big three of that time of internet access providers were AOL, Compuserve and Prodigy.

    Netzero came much later.

    It wasn’t a big one. Like it was a small one that tried to copy aol and compuserv. Had same interface and set up might have even been owned by one of them. I think it started with the letter H
