20 Years Ago on July 25, 1999 -- Get a Web Page With 1-2-3 Publish (namechecking Johnny Cash)

July 25, 1999: For Sunday, we went with AOL's web site builder, 1-2-3 Publish (not to be confused with AOL Hometown, which was specifically for home pages built off templates). The pictured bit of the animated gif promo is "My name is Sue," clearly a reference to the Johnny Cash song; we can't know the rest of the promo gif, though there's no way we used the rest of that quote:

[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.]
