20 Years Ago on Dec. 3, 1998 -- Buddy Chat for Free

December 3, 1998: Another simulated chat window in the lead promo; "Forget 'Dime a Minute'" refers to either a Sprint or AT&T campaign that advertised calling plans at 10 cents a minute. Of course, trying to link text chat with voice calls is a like trying to compare apples to acetone, but whatever.

[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.]
