    Remember back in the late 90's and early 2000's the Nickelodeon Website had a certain section of their site that had more than just the basic Click a Ma Jig Game's on it that were only accessible to AOL Users? Anyway, at that time all we had at home was a basic local dial up internet service provider and it was called South Texas Internet Service and I wanted to access the better games on the Nickelodeon Website and I begged my mom to get AOL Service so that we could access it but she said it was just too expensive and then one day I got to go with my mom to work and get on the computer their and to my surprise they had AOL Internet Service at my moms place of work and I accessed the Better Nickelodeon Games on their website their, and then I looked at the top of the AOL Web Browser to find that the HTTP Address was listed in the address bar and then I decided to write down the address on a piece of paper and then I brought it home and punched it into my internet explorer browser and I was able to access it at home without aol service for 2 or 3 days and then I guess Nickelodeon found out that a Non AOL User was accessing their AOL Only Content and on the third or fourth day I tried to go back to it only to find an error message that said you don't have permission to access this section of the site and that pissed me off.

    Stupid Viacom, they own Nickelodeon and most of it's content, The greedy bastards make it so that you have to pay into a much more expensive internet service provider so that you could access the better games and such that their website had to offer back then.

      Yes and the sad part is is that you're overpaying for damn dial-up. FFS even netzero can be had for $10/month and if you wanna shell out $50/month for AOL, you can find a decent broadband service for that much.

      What was the website anyway?

                    It was nick.com before Viacom fucked the whole thing up. In 2000 (which was when Spongebob was still a recent franchise), you were finally allowed to view nick.com without AOL.
