On being a highlight reel of items from the January 1999 issue of Spin, which will induce crippling existential dread in folks of above a certain age and utter bafflement in those below it. Management assumes no responsibility for any incidents of spontaneous desiccation that may occur.

My first “real” PC was a Celeron II eMachine purchased during the wild and wooly dot-com salad days of 1999. It was sold as part of a incredibly cheap bundle (including monitor, scanner, and printer) by Value America, who subsidized the too-good-to-be-true sale price with its rapidly shrinking pool of investor capital.
