Dude, Where's My Chat?
Dude, Where's My Chat?

I want to know what happened to all the chatrooms from those days. You can't even find a reference to most of them on today's net.

I had a beta release of Windows Chicago (Win 95) on my machine, which had a modem hooked to a phone jack. There was nothing else on the machine, (like AOL). One night I couldn't sleep and came down to snack at 3am. As I walked by the machine, I heard the hard drive spin up and start reading. The modem then started beeping and dialed out! I stood there in amazement as the hard drive flickered as if it were reporting back to the Mother Ship. I yanked the power cable out of the wall and never left the computer alone with an open phone line again.

In AOL / AIM , if you added the screenname 'Operators' they would always be online. Sometimes they would sign off but then sign back on again immediately. They would never reply to any message you sent and this was after years of trying.
