WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Windows 95 Tips, Tricks, and Tweaks

Dip your toe in the seemingly bottomless pool of web-based whimsy that is Tumblr, and you never know what you might find. Political activism, amateur philosophy, cutting-edge art and design – you name it, you can find it.

We dip our toes, every now and again, and this time we got a little more than we bargained for.

At first glance, windows95tips.tumblr.com is a visual flashback to a more innocent age of blocky graphics, slow-loading images, and oh so many pop-up error messages. It looks like a list of handy tips, tricks and tweaks for an aging operating system. Useful, eh?

Then you read the small print.

This is a twisted take on the old Windows 95 pop-up screens and is a real treat for anybody with a slightly dark sense of humour.

Not for everybody perhaps, but it made us chuckle. But then, we don’t get out much…

If you have a useful, funny, or just plain weird website that you want to tell us about, drop us a line using our feedback form.
