Hey there fellow surfer. This is my emotional roller coaster.
I'm Luna, who runs on nostalgy. I like platform games, 90s music and Biker Mice from Mars.
Every week I told my mum I hate Hanson. Once she got me a Hanson shirt and said I remember you talked about them. I did not speak her for over a week. I
never wore that shirt and hide it in my closet.
I never cared BSB either, but I got myself Aaron Carter cd. I was convinced ”I Will Be Yours” would be my wedding song.
This is what I remember doing on the internet.
I was at the library looking for pictures of ponies, and wrote the links down. When I got home I wrote the link to the internet explorer so I could look at the ponies again.
I still remember one www-page: there were pics of falabellas and I wanted them all. My mind was blown when libraries got printers and I
could print all the ponies in black and white.
I also wrote them down because I was not allowed to look them up at the internet. Internet was only for school work (and ponies). Sadly I couldn't
write very well so often C and G got mixed up. I was super sad when the cheat code didn't work.
The blasted modem
When I got my first computer around 1997-1998, we had dial-up modem. You know that annoying little bastard that made the beep-boop sound. And when the
computer finally connected to the interwebs after 15 minutes of waiting, my mum insisted to use the phone.
”Mum I'm doing a school project! Well okay, 5 more minutes.”
And it was enough time to find one pony.
Note to readers: I wasn't spoiled. I could be surfing only 15 minutes a day. It was super expensive and very slow.
I also made web pages. I used Geocities and Angelfire and it breaks my heart that those services are long gone.
So this page is my tribute to the Internet as I remember it. Enjoy.
