#20YearsAgoOnAOLcom: Nov. 3, 1999 -- Airfare Sale Ends Today; Pokemon and Pikachu

November 3, 1999: So we don't have the full context of the page, but apparently yesterday's Xerox murders didn't even rate a top promo treatment. Instead, we went back to airfare sales (the first travel promo since the EgyptAir crash a few days before):1999_11_03

[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.]
