ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I'm calling it already: Windows 95 Tips is Blog of the Year.
Update: the creator is Neil Cicierega!
As someone who had to install Windows 95 from floppy disk numerous times I think all those screens are actually in the operating system.
There are function keys way beyond F12 that you are not ready for.
Most of them would burn your fucking finger off.
Oh don’t worry I have a Gateway 2000 AnyKey keyboard with a dual set of function keys, I’m ready for the heat.
My son and I were looking through this blog on my laptop & finally got to the first entry. My son reached out to touch the screen & feel its warmth. I shut the laptop on his hand.
He says he’ll never stop punching me.
Ah, the memories. I remember changing the ‘w’ to a ‘t’ in the “it is now safe to turn off…” message.
Freaked my Mum right out.
I would have liked to see this merged with Sinistar. =D
Surely it’s Windows 7 we should all fear, for …
I don’t know about Windows 7, but Windows 8 could have been named Windows 13…
You can choose the time and manner of your death. Note: Do not click Preview.
This is one of the best internets i have seen all year. And wonderful when analysed as neo-lovecraftian micro-fiction.
Windows 95 was GLaDOS 1.0
I notice I’m holding my mouse more loosely after reading about that blood-collecting needle.
I’m using a Samsung mouse and have begun to smell burning kimchi.
Time to take a walk.
It’s no coincidence the red glowing eye on the current generation of mice is safely pointed towards the table.
I never once questioned my memories of the doll.
The second-person writing style, though decidedly more upbeat, reminds me of this relatively creepy set of stories:
The guy who did this is also responsible for the primal “Animutation” Flash-videos, and the wonderful “Potter Puppet Pals.”
Ahh, sweet Mr. Cicierega. I think I might still be able to rattle off “The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny” in its entirety.
After enjoying the blog, of course I had to look up “Hyakugojyuuichi” and watch it. I never get tired of that crazy thing. “Found a hobo in my room….”
Love the VideodromeOS.
