Buying ringtones then and having phone on to show off, but now, the quieter the better Building our own fast or reliable computersWorking with McIntosh and Apple and first Windows, and the cute MicrosoftDIAL UP! connecting and disconnecting phone line so can go online (but not too long because expensive)MSN messenger and AOL messenger - what's up? AOL?? Age, sex, location? , then moving on to fancier Trillian messengers or something cause smileys and colors For me, back in birth country, we have to rent video game and computer consoles and devices because too inflated to afford RADIO stations and searching through them (some still do now but not like back then or faster radio services like the car FM/AM!)
Quote from: Pinki on Mar 11, 2022, 08:06 PMOh I forgot about ASL. We rented movies and games but not the consoles. Did you ever play command and concur on the PC. My brother would kick my butt every time.OH.. What about Floppy disks.
Quote from: Ko on Mar 12, 2022, 01:23 PMI rent movies and games too, more so once after I was in a foreign country. Floppy disk! I was the happiest when the (I forgot what's called but) high storage floppy disks came out! More storage! CD/DVD +/- and/or still gets me I played command and conquer and diablo and few other classics. (diablo was more modern to me at that time). I played something like Warzone too. And old school Sims, thinking I'm sinning to use cheat codes like "Cousin Vinnie"
Quote from: Pinki on Mar 13, 2022, 08:27 PMI still play sims. Now they are on number 4 lol I have played and owned everyone. I have so many cheats to make the game more realistic. I love it and will always play it
Quote from: Ko on Mar 14, 2022, 12:31 PMI played the phone version once I was studying abroad. It was fun! I played for almost a year and then they got all upgraded to MANY features in my face at once.
Quote from: Pinki on Mar 16, 2022, 02:50 PMI think I tried the phone game but did not like it so stopped playing lol. I wish they would bring back the PC online version that would be fun
Quote from: Ko on Mar 16, 2022, 04:28 PMThey have to bring back the PC version!Phone game was fine until they started charging for every single thing once you were at a certain level!I was playing to be stress free from a hard day of studies and lectures. Arcades are still fun for me!!OMG I wonder if the arcades still have Duck shooting with that lil puppy! or is it gone because old school or gone because community standards?
Quote from: Pinki on Mar 16, 2022, 04:50 PMI think they can still be found sometimes. I went to a bar in Seattle that had all OLD arcade games it was awesome had the old old pong games and some I had never seen before.
