The emulation scene was starting then: it was a time when people were already fond of their older machines and software and began wondering if current machines would be able to run emulated versions just ok. And they did, at least the more basic stuff: emulators for NES, Commodore 64 and Infocom's z-machine were popping here and there. I was on the internet since the 1994 and saw these developments with great passion. :)

Here are some of those sites still around:

Amazing. 1996 was when commercial web was beginning instead of just personal and community driven "homepages". I also remember first getting in contact with the GNU project when downloading a GCC-powered compiler for Windows in 1996. Would only switch to Linux in 2001, though...
