  • $12.00


Can you remember 'back in the day' the excitement of connecting a phone line to your computer, telling people you were 'going online and don't pick up the phone!' and magically having your computer's modem (9600 baud, 14.4k, 28.8k, 33.6k, 56k, DSL) connecting to AOL and hearing 'you have mail'?  Followed by all the AIM sound effects of new messages, random message requests, messaging random people at any hour of the day or night for a chat, searching for new 'friends' (online acquaintances you'd never probably meet), reading their 'info', doors opening, doors closing, 'chat friends' logging on & off, cash register sounds, beeps, dings, and so on....we do!  For 20 years we used this chat service and as reminder of this once new-aged chat tool, we made our AIM is away 1997-2017 enamel pin.  We're suckers for nostalgia...
