November 23, 1998: We started out with another My News crossword promo (rerun) and a generic Personal Finance stock market promo; this got swapped out with a late day update because...
...the Dow hit a new record (a dizzying 9,374.27); but wait, there's more! The top text promo says, "AOL Negotiating to Buy Netscape," which we were. People on the AOL.com team were involved in the negotiations; for a while, we knew something was up, but we didn't know what, although we did get a codename: Project N. And now we knew why.
which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998.
I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them
in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
