    First I've used of the internet was around 98 or 99. Mainly I would be visiting the Pokemon website as well as Nick.com.


    Yeah, my experiences were similar except I would visit GameFAQS. At that time video games were my main interest when I was in middle school so it was always cool to find something on them.

      Do you have an iPhone? I can't seem to get custom tones other than the ones installed on the phone.


      Yes I do. You have to create a .m4r file and put it in the phone via iTunes. Directions here: http://www.demogeek.com/2009/07/31/how-to-add-custom-ringtones-to-your-iphone/
      Audacity is a free program.

        Nice! Thanks I'll look into this. A guy at work has the NES power on sound for texts and it's really cool.

          My first time ever getting online was in January 1996, when I signed onto CompuServe about three months after getting my first PC. Most internet providers required a credit card to sign up, which I didn't have at the time and CompuServe was the only one I found that didn't require a credit card. Shortly after that I started corresponding with a lady in Hong Kong I've found through an online pen pal service and in early April that year I made my first ever trip abroad to meet her!!! Great memories of the 1990's!!!

                You mean Gameboy? NES had no standard power on sound but Gameboy did...If you mean what I think you do yeah that would be a great noise for texts.

                Besides "you got mail", I have a old cordless phone for texts; old cell phone for calls; old electric alarm clock (BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP) for calendar events; old windup alarm clock for wake alarms; Defender arcade game "materialize" sound effect for send mail. What annoys me, is the message for send text seems to not work if it's not the default!

                Another good sound I've heard someone have was the Super Mario powerup sound. And old video games in general have a wealth of short sound effects that are good for that.

                  I remember back in '98, I used to browse WCW's website before the company went out of business.

                    Back in 2001 I'd browse digimon.com before the franchise and it's assets were discontinued.

                      I remember going to a site called dragoonmoonx which was a perverted hentai site for DBZ and Sailor Moon. I was struggling with puberty at the time..


                      What, does that site still exist?

                        Great, but what does this have to do with 90s internet?

                          I've posted before here but I must say that GameFAQS was the main site I visited in the 90s. For me that was the internet. It's good to see the site is still alive and well. I started in the late 90s with it and continued on it for years and years. I remember I was on there a ton researching old games throughout the 2000s and then following the XBox 360 and all the red rings of death topics were hilarious. I was also there during the Wii and all the jokes that ensued and I'm still there today. Some things from the 90s are alive and well while so many other things are just a relic of the past.

                            I browsed a site called practicallypokemon before the owner made a new site. I wasn't allowed to go to her new site because it had cussing.

                              I went on Nick. I looked at Rocko. I went to CN, saw Courage.


                              Pokemon.com, looked at the events and GameFAQs, tips on how to catch all 151 Pokemon.
