    OK, I know there is a good chance that this thread will go nowhere since most of you aren't even close to the level of geekness I possess. The internet is now old and so are the many packages of software that I wasted my time mastering only to find something new come along the minute I became an "expert". I spent many hours learning Lotus123 and WordPerfect to have to learn Excel and Word. As far as websites, some of the best are now gone. Before Yahoo bought
    Audionet.com/Broadcast.com, it was a great before they ruined it. File sharing was a whole other issue. Before the RIAA came along, you could download anything you wanted, allegedly with no repercussions. What are some of the old software or old web sites that you wish were still around?

    I miss AOL chat rooms. It was like this, only instantaneous. And the women were hornier.

    Remember that one fondly. Remember downloading massive amount of "Warez" in the chat rooms.
