Yea I never use the software anymore. I just go to aol.com through IE. Faster and with less junk.

"Whats your email address?"
"hookersnblow@aol.com"

me thinking: "Damn, this is going to be a long call."

I made a lot of money removing AOL crapware and viruses from unsuspecting AOL customers.

There are/were people who didn't even own computers anymore who paid the monthly extortion for years because they couldn't cancel it

I have AOL. I don't use it as my main e-mail, as an ISP, or a web browser. I just use it for the chat, where I go to the same chat room I've been using for about 8 years. I've been talking to the same people for that long, and met a bunch of them, so I just keep AOL so I can talk to them. It would be nice to move to another forum, but oh well.

There's still many places that don't have any other broadband solution other than satellite, but there is a local AOL number.

I had a PC shop with a friend back in 97-98. I remember *vividly* sitting with a customer and trying to explain the Internet to him. He had AOL.

He simply could not comprehend the idea that you could get to the Internet without going through AOL. The idea of an ISP and not being hand-held along the way to Internet content was so alien to him I might as well have been speaking Klingon to a fish.

My parents... My dad has been using computers since the 80s when the first desktops began showing up, he has always built his own computers and knows how to use them but for some damn reason I cannot convince him that he does not need to use AOL to access his email or the internet
