It's August 4th, 1999. You have a few weeks of summer vacation left.

It's August 4th, 1999. You have a few weeks of summer vacation left. You wake up in the morning and message your buddy ELSears asking if he wants to come over and play games on your Dreamcast.

You don't know this, but this is the greatest era for the internet, technology, and human civilization. It's all downhill from here.

        sure ! enjoy your 1999 text based crap

        >People used to give a shit about each other online instead

        computers/tech have the sole need of engaging yourself. Saying tech bad because people became shittier is a lame excuse. If you loved to have people care about you then stop using a computer and go meet people.

            any tech from 1999 is objectively inferior to tech from 2023.

          There is arguably more graphical content in the image OP posted than text

      I'm just hoping I can survive WW3 and maybe something resembling the old internet can come back in my last few decades. Frick. People used to give a shit about each other online instead of trying to 1up each other with their funniest gore image or wojak.

      The internet should have never been worldwide or mobile phone based, it should have been restricted to a per state level only. It should have been restricted and locked down and kept artificially small

      Frick me, man. I feel so bad for zoomers, they don't know what they missed out on.

      not that at all. its more the self defeating whiny wistful attitude that annoys me. that's why the magic of those days will never be recaptured again. you all just mope about it like a bunch of homosexuals

        The magic can't be recaptured because it requires good faith in your fellow man, which doesn't exist anymore. No matter how hard you try, you'll always be polluted by redditors, channers, tiktokers and dominated by their culture.

        You can never have your galapagos islands again. That was the special sauce.

      >ywn get to destroy people in microsoft ants again
      I honestly think if some indie just ripped off microsoft ants with anime girls and multiplayer it could be a big hit tbh
