So I called tech support, and the rep helped me out. After staring at that blank screen for a few minutes, I called AOL tech support to ask why it was so damn slow.The rep patiently explained that many websites, like You Tube and Netflix, require a much faster connection.My brain wanted 1995 dial-up Internet to operate flawlessly in a 2015 world. In 2015, using a dial-up connection to look at porn is like a teenager looking at 1950s Playboys. Do they just click on a video before they go to work in the morning, and then watch it when they come home eight hours later?
That’s because they’re all fans of Minnesota made skin care line, Brevena.Getting on a great skin care regimen is important, but that’s only one part of looking and feeling your best.So we put together a panel of three women in the 50s and 60s to share their secrets to aging gracefully.Would it be a fun, nostalgic trip or would I get so impatient I'd throw my laptop out the window? The majority of these folks either live in rural areas without easy broadband access (I live in Denver), or are probably just too old to know how much better things can be. But then my In exchange for my credit card info, I was granted a free month's trial (free trials are still very much a thing, except now that free CD with 10,000 free hours is outdated. I was on my way to getting that sweet, sweet Internet from 1995. After all, I couldn’t miss my curfew if my computer was only 10ft from my race car bed.Working with the latter theory, I figured my neighbors, who are significantly older than I am (I'm in my 30s, and they are... at Best Buy) didn't work the first few times I tried it. I tried to watch Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," which turned out to be super fitting.I guess I won't continue watching that I opened another tab and tried to go to a different site, not thinking that that would slow down my experience even more. And even though reddit was only founded in 2005, and thus not part of my 1995 Internet experience at all, I was desperate to go on a site that would load in a reasonable amount of time. Once it did load, I was too impatient to click on any of the links lest I fall on a site that uses Flash, and I didn't want to be at my neighbor's house using his dial-up connection until 2016.
