What a Difference Eighteen Years Makes

So, I'm cleaning out some old files this afternoon, and I come across an image of a floppy disk that I stored a few years ago.  I've long since digitized and thrown away all floppy media, except for a couple of them that I kept for posterity or for emergency DOS boot disks so I can still play TIE Fighter.

I mounted the image and discovered something that dates from exactly 18 years ago today: a list of (all!) all the dot-com web servers then in operation on May 31, 1995.  Enjoy.
