    Oh yeah. I had full blown internet access in 1995 with my super fast 28.8 modem. A serious upgrade from the 1200 baud modem that I had.

    I remember finding porn sites was a difficult challenge then. SPAM wasn't an issue then. Netscape was the ultimate browser. Popups weren't discovered yet.

    Bulletin boards were still the craze, using special DOS style browsers.
    Windows 95 "upgrade" (from Win 3.x) was $80.00

    YAHOO was new. It was "THE" search engine.

    No eBay then.

    No Napster or P2P. If you found a file to download, it took ages to get, and most of the time, the website disappeared in a few days. Blank CDs cost $7.00 each. 2X CDROM burners were new.

    Remember FREE internet, with those banners?

    Historical internet. It would be interesting to find old websites and ads from then.
    I have had many websites and e-mail addresses since then, but I still have one that is 7 years old.
