I laugh every time I see that. Do kids nowadays even know what America Online is? :lol:

I don’t :shifty:

Sadly they still exist :frowning: . I have a client who uses them (and has done for years) - it took me AGES to convince them to stop using their horrible bloaty software…

I want that chair, it looks totally awesome, they should sell them on ThinkGeek! :smiley:

As for AOL CD’s I still have some lying around… ironic they have become collectors items (due to their widespread distribution).

Didn’t they give out lots of free coasters and CD shaped frisbies?

:slight_smile:

I’ve just discovered Wikipedia has its own article on the hobby of AOL Disk Collecting (crikey). Some “interesting” uses for them though:

I remember AOL (or should that be AOhelL), they were the worst ISP in the world back in the day :lol:

Holy crap that’s a lot of cd’s. They are going for about $10 a pop nowadays…dang I coulda been rich.
