You’re probably just marvelling at the sheer chunkiness of these machines, and haven’t even noticed the absence of trackpads yet.
(One thing in common with today’s laptops - no CD/DVD drive.)

I was *briefly* an AOL subscriber way back in the 90s, although this was when I was still on dial-up. Never used AIM, though.
Main reason I’m posting is because I recently tried installing Windows 98 SE into a virtual machine on my Mac using Parallels Desktop. Did get it working eventually (had to dig around for the necessary drivers), but ho boy was it bad! It wouldn’t go above 1024 x 768 resolution, so I got the authentic small-screen experience. I could get online, but with IE 5 the World Wide Web only just works now. I must remember to fire it up and take some screenshots…

Downsizing

I’m having to adjust my social media time again. Pushing most of my follows over to Feedly, so at least that way I have one less place to check into.

I’ve also gone through and turned off retweets for just about all of the accounts I follow on Twitter. The marginal drop in signal is more than made up for by the enormous drop in noise.

The less time I spend being distracted by the net, the more time I have to be productive with.
