20 Years Ago on Nov. 25, 1998 -- Pre-Thanksgiving Trio

November 25, 1998: Not sure why I did two updates for the day before Thanksgiving; the lead spot was last-minute cooking tips, while the lead text promo was about movies: Babe: Pig in the City; the Drew Barrymore movie Home Fries; and the Cameron Diaz movie Very Bad Things.

We adjusted the Web Centers column to put Autos at the front of a lineup with no discernible lineup; there's also a Holiday shopping text promo at the top of the Shopping promo. I did another version after this but have no idea what the difference was
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, 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.]
