Interesting - it's strange to remember just how basic websites and browsers were back then, especially even earlier than this example when you were using a  pre-Windows, MS-DOS only PC.  :eek:

I made my first Amazon purchase in 1998 I think, but I have no recollection of what the site looked like at that time.

My earliest purchase from Amazon was October '97 according to Amazon, but I feel like I'd bought stuff before that. BUT, we had a different email address when we first came back and that ISP got bought out later and we ended up with Comcast. So I feel like there were orders under the previous email address that aren't showing on my account now.
I didn't think of that - when I checked on Amazon and found my first purchase was 1998, I also thought it should have been earlier. I definitely had a different email address when I was first online, so that could be the explanation. Either way, it feels like I've been an Amazon customer forever.

I do remember how amazing it was to be able to browse books for hours with no sore feet and then to have your purchases delivered right to your door within a day or two. The only problem was, since I could do it all the time, day or night, my book purchases skyrocketed. (I never needed much of an excuse to overrun my book budget!). :eek: :D
