Okay, so I was stumbling around and was all of a sudden remembered of this.  WHO REMEMBERS this theme song?  So much nostalgia!  'Wishbone' the dog was a tv series and a direct to video series.

I think this tune sounds great even now:
And back then, for me it was the best way to say «Congratulations! You got your own PC!».
When XP was common, everybody had their own computers already, so XP's startup sound doesn't had this effect of awesomeness.

And of course, some people can feel nostalgia for dial-up sound, but for me it was a thing which I tried to forget ASAP.

I totally forgot about Wishbone, Raine!  What a stellar memory.  That song is pretty catchy still.  The 80s and 90s had many catchy jingles and songs.  Today our music isn't either.


Since we are that computer kick, I remember a long long time ago playing this as a kid.


I haven't thought about this until just now. I had to have been like a tiny tot.  'The Living Books' games also did games for Arthurt and there Bear-instein bears (spelling).

^I didn't found a fun in them. 3D objects, 3D maze, 3D pipes — they bored me before I became a computer owner.
My favorite screensaver (for almost 20 years, i.e. always) is the monitor sleep ;D.

As for sounds — these epic chords return me to times, when «you need to cut down trees to harvest wood» was a pinnacle of realism. ;D

I had this screensaver back on my old old Mac.  The classic flying toasters...  This had to have been the early 90s?

If we're throwing up nostalgic screensavers, allow me to throw this classic into the pot.

I remember on my iMac (the colorful ones) there was a screensaver of a fish aquarium that was ultra realistic.

Uhm... Like this one?


I always liked its look: weird, bulky, but attractive.
Today it's very easy to forget that some times ago Apple was not strongly associated only with iPods and iPhones.

^ I REMEMBER THOSE Computers!  They were so pretty in all the colors they came in.  Now Apple's are all white and silvery!  All sleek and void of emotion, lol.

Oh my gosh.... REMEMBER FRUIT ROLL UPS and FRUIT BY THE FOOT?  Do they even still make those?  I remember some fruit rolls had shapes and designs you could punch out and eat too.  Fruit by the Foot was an actual foot long and came in many flavors and colors and the wrapper had jokes or trivia the entire length!  Anyone else remember those?
