Dudeeeee! i remember a time when dial-up was just in the beginning and only a couple of lucky folks could aford a dialup connection from home, I was going to this IT company just to surf and they were having Netscape installed on all puters. I loved it! Somewhere around that time I remember I bought two x 2MB for my new ATI videocard ahahahahaaha, wtf man I must be old! After a while I traded that card for an amazing 3DFX accelerator. When I got home I realised I still need a video card to use the 3DFX so I bought an S3 to replace the ATI.
