We all know how nostalgic the 90s can be, in ways that other decades simply can’t compare. So if you’re feeling exhausted, or you just need a jolt of energy to to get you through the day, then why not take a stroll down memory lane? I guarantee you’ll leave with a smile on your face.
For example, which of these instant messengers did you prefer? I was always partial to AIM, but I know many who are die-hard ICQ fans and MSN fans!
And we can’t forget the amazing sounds of Windows. When you hear the same sound effects day in and day out, it’s hard not to think back on them with a fond heart. Which set of sounds were your favorite?
Hardware sounds have left a mark, too. Now that everything is digital, we don’t get to hear many mechanical noises anymore. Do you miss the days of VHS, payphones, and floppies?
Lastly, I grew up on video game consoles, and I know I’m not the only one. Countless hours were spent in front of my TV playing Nintendo 64 and PlayStation, with the occasional round of GameBoy thrown in. I also watched a lot of Nickelodeon!
