I miss Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Chat… those nerds with their ICQ too, why couldn’t they go with the real software.
While reminiscing, does anybody remember when NineMSN tried a premium product? You could pay (I can’t remember if it was a once off or subscription) and essentially you then got a disc in the mail with a new browser branded Ninemsn and access to their premium Windows Live Mail and other products.
Another memory was Kahootz discs, advertised to schools in the late 90’s and came with games and stuff on them I think. The website was kahootz.com which shows up in archive.org but make sure you use the z - spelling it with an s went to an adult website, a “mistake” often made by teenagers back then.
