14 Things We Did On Computers Before The Internet Was A Thing
RIP floppy disks.
The Internet has totally revolutionised the way we use our computers
1. Playing Solitaire non-stop on every computer
Remember that super puas feeling when you finished the game and all the cards started bouncing around the screen??
2. Finding all the bombs in Minesweeper using the all-powerful "double-click" technique
That means pressing the left AND right clicks of the mouse at the same time!
3. Trying to beat your score on Pinball, the game with the coolest graphics ever back in the day
4. Playing PC games that all came in diskettes... not even CDs!
Doom, Diablo, Prince of Persia, StarCraft, Duke Nukem 3D, Age of Empires... so many memories!
5. Learning how to type with MS Word
We did it with two fingers and kept our eyes on the keyboard, so if you accidentally pressed the Caps Lock, YOUR WHOLE ESSAY WOULD END UP LOOKING LIKE THIS.
6. We made random things with WordArt!
7. Do you remember ClipArt?
8. Unleashing our inner Picasso with the original Microsoft Paint
9. And when our masterpieces were done, we would wait ten thousand years for it to be printed
10. Spending a lot of time labelling our floppy disks
11. Spending even more time erasing stuff from floppy disks 'cause they could only hold 1.44 MB
That's a 128GB flash drive on the left and 132MB worth of floppy disks on the right!
12. Before Wikipedia, we had Encarta as our digital encyclopedia
13. We watched a lot of double-sided VCDs on our tiny computer screens
14. CD-Roms were like the coolest thing ever especially when it was rewritable haha
