Nailed it! If only the caption had been spelled "WUT!?!" It would have been 100% accurate.

Did they get the soundtrack from the Mortal Kombat movie?

You do realize they were just robots reading off cue cards, so give credit to whatever IT geek wrote the script. I knew a bunch of guys in the early 90's who were saying the same thing.

They failed to mention that the other 95% of the internet would be just porn. I guess that would've been awkward.

The completely ignored the wide array of fetish pron that would be available that had not even been conceived of in 1995.

FAIL.

Reminds me of the cable guy movie

I don't think it was too terribly hard to predict most of that, in fact I believe the movie "the net" predicted most of that, which came out in the same year

It isn't fair because these are the people who made the internet like that. They could have made it better if they wanted to.

One - no.

Two - not so much a ring as touch-tone dialing sound before all the digital contact noise that filled you with glee.

There's a certain something about that sound that conveys connecting to the internet seem so mcuh more organic. Or earthy or something. Whatever. I think the lack of that physicalitythat comes with sound that makes connecting to he internet much less satisfying and much more frustrating when your connection is shiatty.

/Ok, library distance is subjective, but most didn't have a computer bank, let alone access that wasn't dial-up.
