It was satisfying to revisit AOL as I haven’t done anything with it in a very long time. Facebook replaced it a long time ago. Yet I knew they were still active; there’s two million dial-up users that they support along with many many loyal users who are using broadband, and even though I don’t need it for anything but nostalgia at this point, I’m just really impressed that they keep at least minimal support going for older versions. Version 6 working really surprised me; Of course it’s a shadow of its former self as the world has moved on – yet it’s still going. Seeing people hanging around in the chat rooms kinda made me feel good – an old tradition from the early days of online still continues for some people.
