Yeah I used to love the Mad Libs game, and the choose your own adventure games on there. Had to be careful because some of them charged money, and I wasn't allowed to use any that did.

There was a little icon at the bottom of the screen (This was before multitasking computing. The prodigy application ran in DOS and took up the whole screen.) that told you how much you were being charged at the moment. Some of them charged by number of page loads, and some actually charged based on the time you spent on the page.

My mom used it for email, and was on a bbs.
