I have a question about late '90's porn sites.

You'd visit a 'gallery' and think "Oh, that transsexual midget amputee in leather looks nice I'll click on xir...." and then five new windows would pop-up that took you elsewhere ad infinitum.

My question is why?

What was the purpose in annoying the gently caress out of somebody to the point they never visited your site again?

First off we didn't have dumb names forvgenders. Second of all if you didn't have at least one reliable porn site memorised you were just downloading viruses ad infinitum

I'll never forget the moment I fired up Quake 2 after getting my first Voodoo1 with its massive 4mb of VRAM and experienced 3d for the first time.

Changed my life man.

The first time I saw Voodoo graphics was the first Unreal at a computer store and it blew me away.

always been a fan of beos but windows 98 was intentionally neutered
upon carefully fixing that i achieved <10 second boot times (to idle) and load times (also to idle) for all windows applications (including photoshop but not Quake 3 for instance) at literally faster than i could take my finger off the mouse upon a double-click off a <5400rpm drive of whatever aerial density was typical for a cheap maxtor
had to look up how to disable the splash screen for so many programs that expected to need them

the first game i played with 3d acceleration was interstate 76

Interstate 76 has the best soundtrack of any game I've ever played.

Someone make a kickstarter and remake that game with new graphics.
