my very first computer was a commodore 16 which was followed up by the Commodore 16+4. This was given with the code which you had to type in and save to a cassette disk. on loading the disk if all was typed in correctly you got a game called snowman.

At one time, I had an AOL connection at 14,700 kbs. I used IE, Netscape Navigator, AOL and a new fangled browser called Opera. I liked Opera because at that time it was the only browser that offered tabbed browsing. I can remember loading up multiple webpages in Opera and going outside to wash the car or cut the grass and coming back in and the pages still had not loaded yet. Downloading was hit or miss as well, I downloaded lots of game demos at that time. I remember going to bed and letting it download all night - waking up only to find that the download failed. I think I had a gazillion floppys. Those big ones were a pain in the ass. When I got the small floppy disk reader I was in heaven, plus they were usually double density! I remember thinking how cool it was that I could listen to my cds on my computer. That 20 GB hard drive took forever to fill up. I actually remember smacking my monitor to make my computer run right. LOL
