Shit, we could start a whole "ITT We talk about what a shit service AOL is". And they make it difficult to get rid of too.Once they got you on the phone, "Oh, how about I give you a free month to change your mind" blah blah blah. Just cut me off bitch, I already uninstalled that ad ridden software.

I'd just a soon hook up to the net with some string and cans before I'd EVER consider those bastards.

.......but I'm not bitter.. :whaa:

  Screw AO hell they freaking ripped me off for like 3 months that were supposed to be free because everytime I called to cancell they told me they would give me another month so I stayed for several months then got a bill for like 100 dollars or something and I called them and they said I got the dates wrong or something and said there was nothing they could do!!! I said a few bad words serveral times to them!!! And finally we had the bill done to 3 months so we paid it they screwed us out of our money f%^$#^5ers!!!!

Before AOL:

Q-Link disk

Q-Link was AOL's (then called Quantum Computer Services) service for the Commodore computer. You could call it the first real precursor to the AOL service, since it provided news, entertainment, chat, etc. Before Quantum was Quantum, its name was CoVideo Corp., and its product was GameLine, an online service for owners of Atari game machines. It allowed people to download games over the phone lines.

I still miss Prodigy Classic, my first "isp". They succumbed to y2k  :cry:

If the person who started the topic decides to come back 2 or 3 months later with either the same problem or wanting to say thanks or such, and can't do this, they aren't very happy... there is other reasons but I can't think of them off the top of my head...
