Those make really good scarecrows. Hang them from strings in the garden and they swing and flash and scare away the birds.

I used an AOL 10 free hour CD to get access to the Internet and find a real ISP.

These trial offer CDs were included in the nearby town's
freepaper (weekly arts wrap-up), for several months.
I'd just have to keep throwing them away.
Never used AOL myself.
Started off dial-up via Earthlink, remember them ?
