AOL was made for her

I worked for AOL providing tech support back when they were just starting to grow (95) . I had a prospective member call in to tell me that she could not get the software to install.

I walked her through inserting the disk and then asked her which version of Windows she was running; since 3.1 was still out there and 95 was becoming more commonplace.

She replied “I’m not running Windows.”

I said “So you have a Mac then?”

Her reply was “No I have a Brother.”

She apparently was trying to load the AOL software onto her word processor.

I do remember word processor at the time had floppy disk drives… – Rob
