20 Years Ago on Jan. 4, 1999 -- Buddy Chat

January 4, 1999: As I recall, Buddy Chat was a feature of AOL/AIM that allowed users to create their own private group chat rooms. Meanwhile, we continued our series of Personal Finance "Get Rich Clicks," featuring tips for saving more in '99.

[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.]
