Subject: Late 90s Nostalgia (1997-1999)

Written By: exodus08 on 12/01/16 at 1:14 pm

Next year we are gonna start reminiscing about the late 90s. From Buffy the vampire slayer series turning 20 years old to remembering songs like Barbie girl and We like to party (vengabus).

Isn't the late 90s already considered by many people as "nostalgic"? There are already dozens and dozens of videos, articles, and even throwbacks of late 90s nostalgia since 2013. In fact, the same could go for the early 2000s, even though it depends on what shows and movies are you talking about. Plus, some people mix the early 2000s with the mid 2000s, since they're similar culturally.

The best Disney sequels in my opinion are Hunchback of Notre Dame II and Lilo & Stitch 2. But the Lion King sequels were okay.

If I was alive in the late 90's I'd hope to be a kid or teen because I don't find most of the mainstream culture at the time to be anything special other than the sports world being pretty badass. I would have loved to witness the 1998 Atlanta Falcons season, but thankfully I was able to witness and feel emotions of our amazing 2012 season despite coming up short of a Super Bowl trip. If 1996 was included in the late 90's nostalgia I would have gone crazy over the games that came out throughout the year and the fact that it was a huge year for Atlanta sports and the Olympics.

If that's supposed to be a representation of the late 90s and early 2000s, then I don't know what to say. They're both similar, especially with the picture quality. It looks quite dated compared to the magazine print that's been updated around the early 2010s.

It's amazing how long of a way Windows has come over the years. Windows XP is my favorite Windows computer of all time because it lasted the longest and it was a huge jump from the Windows NT/95/98 style when the computers were only white and the graphics were really old and pixeled. Windows XP changed our ways of having computers in our houses because it was around the time everybody switched to broadband and the internet started evolving a lot more, including the rise of social media.

But a lot of people, especially on the Internet, remember the late 90s so fondly. Hell, it even reached nostalgia status to some people as early as 2004. The early 90s were the only phase that was 10 years old at the time, but people find it nostalgic for some reason.

Not when I was in High School. 90s pop culture wasn't really talked about in the Mid-2000s and I went to a big high school in Southern California. 80s pop culture was a different story.

No, I meant on the Internet. I don't know what to say about 90s nostalgia in real life though, since the decade was kinda recent to some people. Hell, even I thought the 90s were sort of recent with VCRs still being everywhere I go as a kid. It wasn't until late 2008 when they started to change towards DVDs or something like that.

Not sure about the internet since I rarely used it back then. I didn't even know this site even existed until 2015. People rented or bought DVDs or VHS tapes in the early & mid 00s, but In the late 00s people stopped buying and renting VHS tapes.

In where I live in New York, people stopped using VHS tapes around the very early 2010s. I guess 2010 is where I last recall seeing a movie on VHS. I think they still bought VHS tapes until 2006 or 2007, when the VHS industry finally died and didn't produce the latest releases anymore.

I think that they kept the cartoon version of Chuck E. Cheese in their ads up through the mid '00s, so it's not surprising that you would remember it. I can actually remember the old days when Chuck E. Cheese ads just had some dude dressed up in a gigantic rat costume.

I remember buying this skateboard in the late 90's:

http://www.artofskateboarding.com/Pg/Deck_Pics/alienworkshopteam1997-5.jpg

I remember buying it after I broke my Santa Cruz and didn't wanna screw up my Believe deck (my very first deck. It was already chiped to sh!t and super scratched up. I was on the verge of retiring it). I think I broke my arm a couple months after using this deck, too. That one lasted me up to 2000. I didn't break it but the tail shredded off.

I remember buying this one just a while later. I'd never ridden Zero but I needed another deck as I usually ride two decks at a time.

http://www.artofskateboarding.com/Pg/Deck_Pics/zero_ChomponThis.jpg

I liked the graphic a lot but the damn thing broke after a couple of months so I stopped buying Zero and stuck to Alien Workshop and Santa Cruz among others. Somewhere along the lines, I also bought this Plan B Matt Hensley. I dunno if that was before or after the Zero deck. I grew up watching their videos such as Questionable and Virtual Reality so I was really happy to get my hands on one of their decks. Matt Hensley was also one of my favorite skaters. This deck broke sometime in 1999-ish. I remember because I was listening to blink's Enema of the State (when it was new!!!) when I broke it.

http://www.artofskateboarding.com/Pg/Deck_pics/planb_hensley_vikingwoman.jpg

During this time I might of rode three decks at a time, which is why I had both the Zero and Plan B.

Funny you should mention this, because I have my own Chuck E. Cheese horror story.

Back in the summer of 1996, while we were on vacation at Universal Studios, my parents stopped at a Chuck E. Cheese in downtown Orlando for lunch on the second day of our trip. While we were at the arcade machines playing some Pac-Man with my dad, some random dude walked right up to our table, stole my mom's purse and ran out of the restaurant before we even noticed that anything was amiss!

The guy was never caught and my mom's purse was never found, but we got lucky because my dad had the majority of the cash in his wallet. Also, it's a good thing this happened in 1996 when my mom still mostly carried around hard cash and didn't have a bunch of credit/debit cards like she does today, because all the thief really got out of the deal was spare change and some empty lipstick tubes. If this happened in 2016, though, he would've cleaned us out!

If there is one thing that I miss it's the over-the-top/In-Your-Face/Cartoony/Colorful designs that existed back then. I find the minimal style in today's aesthetic to be a bit boring. Although I'm sure this is only a contemporary thing.

Me too! The 60's, 80's and 90's had some of my favorite designs of all time. I hope that by time the 2020's come, things will get less cold/digital and more colorful.

Yup  :) All before this it was nostalgia for a time I didn't remember so I didn't connect to it. But now finally I actually remember the late 90s so it should be cool to see the nostalgia for that time.

How about some late '90s commercials? Here's one that even those of you that were really young in the late '90s should remember just because of how often it got played on TV. There's almost something demonic about this little earworm of a jingle. It's still stuck in my head 20 years later! :o

These days there really isn't a set time for nostalgia. Younger people are more nostalgic for periods more recent while older people are more nostalgic for older periods. The internet has made it possible to be nostalgic for any period, so this argument is pointless. It's no longer the 20 year cycle set in stone, though in terms of a time looking "retro", it is usually after 20 years.

Frankly, it's possible to just be nostalgic for the 90s and 2000s now. But I don't know about preteens, since most of them were born in the mid 2000s (which makes me feel old already).

The late '90s were from 1996 to 1998, not '97 to '99. The late '90s were where mid '90s culture (I.e. - Seinfeld, Picket Fences, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air) went to disappear.

I recall that on escforum.net in 2009, people who were in their preteens to early teens in the Y2K era were starting to find teen pop nostalgic. Hell, I even know that some people were already nostalgic for it in 2006 because of reading old posts in said forum. Then again, the latter may not be too different from how even early '10s songs' comment sections are already filled with people saying the likes of "Thumbs up if you're listening to this song in 2016.''

It depends on how somebody defines late 90s culture. For instance, I somehow define late 90s culture as 1997 to mid 1999, since that's where mid 90s culture started to die off. But 1999 is sort of like a half 90s/half 2000s year, in a cultural sense. So it's not like a lot of people could see it as a pure 90s year.

Early 2010s songs don't seem to be as dated as Y2K songs were in 2006. 2000 was quite different back then, especially when some people could debate that we were still in the 90s. 2010 on the other hand just feels sort of unique, but more like a cousin towards 2016. Which is probably why you don't have people say a lot of stuff about 2010. Hell, I don't even find 2010 to be that nostalgic, since it was around the time 2000s culture died out.

Its crazy how fast time flies :o

1997-1999 will soon be 18-20 years ago, so safely within the 'nostalgic' & 'retro' realm!

For me while I don't have any memories of 1997, I do have a few vague memories of 1998 & more clearer memories of 1999, especially late 1999 around Y2K.

One thing nostalgic about 1999 was the Saturday morning cartoons! Most notably Kids WB during the peak of its 1997-2000 golden age in 1999, with shows like Animaniacs, Pinky & The Brain, Superman TAS, Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries, Men In Black TAS, and most notably Pokemon 8)

UYxfyKVoafs

This right here just screams nostalgia, and it brings me back to a much simpler time before my household had cable, before the internet (while existent) took over our lives, & when things were overall just much more innocent. Its crazy how I actually remember a few of these commercials ;D

I see it like this:

Cultural Early 90's: Late 1991 (with the official end of the Soviet Union & launch of the SNES igniting the 16 bit console wars) through Early 1994 (ending with the death of Kurt Cobain, the end of early 90's shows like Saved By The Bell, & SNES starting to clearly come out on top against the Genesis)

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0b/SNES_US.png


Cultural Mid 90's: Mid 1994 (with the launch of Netscape Navigator, Eurodance, & The OJ Simpson Trial) through Early 1997 (with the disbandment of Soundgarden, death of Biggy Smalls which ended the gangta rap era wars, & the rising popularity of teen pop via The Spice Girls)

http://cdn1.tekrevue.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/old-pc-windows-95.jpg


Cultural Late 90's: Mid 1997 (with the rising success of the N64, release of Barbie Girl, & Men in Black) through Early 2000 (with the end of Y2K hysteria, bursting of Dot.com bubble, & release of PS2 in Japan)

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01244/appleimac1998_1244616i.jpg


Within each decade you have 'core' periods (in which the culture of a decade is best represented) and 'intermediate' periods (in which the culture of the decade decays & eventually forms within a new one).

The core 90's would be from roughly 1992-1998

The Y2K (Millennium, AOL, etc. any name is fine) Era would be from roughly 1998-2004.

From a school year perspective it would look like this:

1992-1993: Core 90's/Early 90's

1993-1994: Core 90's/Early 90's

1994-1995: Core 90's/Mid 90's

1995-1996: Core 90's/Mid 90's

1996-1997: Core 90's/Mid 90's

Debatable.. Late 90s would just be from late 1996-early 1999 for me. The 1999-2000 season was more early 00s than late 90s.
Mid 1999-2001 would be the millennium era. That was all its own time. Neither really 90s or 00s. And Y2K was just event tbh...

2000-2001: millennium era

I'd say fall 1996 to the end of 1998. There were some visible Y2K influences during the last few months, but I think it still felt quite a bit late 90s. The 1998-99 school year was ripe with change... music, television, fashion, etc. seemed different all of a sudden.

You guys discuss the late 90's/early 00's transition waayy too much. Why not include some 80's!!
Mid 1979-Early 1982: 70's/80's transition
Mid 1982-Mid 1983: early 80's
Late 1983-Mid 1986: mid 80's
Late 1986-Mid 1990: late 80's (defining years would be late 1982-1989)
Late 1990-Early 1992: 80's/90's transition
Mid 1992-Mid 1993: early 90's
Mid 1993-Mid 1996: mid 90's
Late 1996-Late 1997: late 90's (defining years would be mid 1991-1995)
Early 1998-Very Early 2000: 90's/what-if 00's transition
Early 2000-Very Early 2003: what-if/early 00's (defining years of the 00's? Who cares! That decade sucked! :P)

There! That is how I see everything from 1979 to 2003. Eat your Factu-o's kids, they're good for you.

(Why do you guys always suck me back into this debate? Every time I say "no! it's stupid" you guys post charts and taunt my big mouth to go and say something! >:()

Culturally, it defines it way better, because 1999 is more of a 2000s year. Even though the only people who say that 1999 is like a 90s year, are those who haven't known so much about the 90s yet.


1999 isn't any less '90s than 1994, by definition, even if it isn't the first year people think of when they think '90s. Although this thread has sort of run its course so maybe this discussion was inevitable ;D I'd say 1997 and 1998 felt mostly the same to me, but by the end of 1998 and into 1999 is when all the big changes were coming in. Regardless, they're all still late '90s to me, even "culturally" ;D

Exactly!

The '90s

Early 90s: January 1, 1990 (When Ed Koch left office) - December 31, 1992
Mid '90s: January 1, 1993 - December 31, 1995
Late '90s: January 1, 1996 - December 31, 1998

The '00s

Turn of the Millennium - January 1, 1999 - December 31, 2001
Second part of the early 00s: January 1, 2002 - December 31, 2004
Mid '00s: January 1, 2005 - December 31, 2007
Late '00s: January 1, 2008 - December 31, 2010


And etc. etc.


If you're talking about New York City mayors, then I'm not sure it's like that in a cultural sense.

David Dinkins era (Early 1990s): January 1, 1990 - December 31, 1993
Rudy Giuliani era (1990s/Early 2000s): January 1, 1994 - December 31, 2001
Michael Bloomberg era (2000s/Early 2010s): January 1, 2002 - December 31, 2013
Bill de Blasio era (2010s/Early 2020s ) January 1, 2014 - December 31, 2021

Just because a mayor from New York City left office in New Years Day of 1990, that didn't really mean the 90s officially started by then. It still felt like the 80s to a lot of people at the time, even though some could argue with that.

It depends though. I always thought the late 90s were more like its own era, before 2000 came in. Although late 1999/early 2000 seems to be the start of the Y2K era, since everybody was worrying if they would die during the year 2000. Although, the third millennium came in by 2001, which is what everyone should've realized.

Eh, not really. There's a difference between millennium culture and 00s culture. Millennium culture was the bridge between the core 90s and the core 00s. Think 1998/99-2002/03 when the internet and cell phones were making a meteoric rise into mainstream society. You really can't compare the early 00s, especially pre-9/11, to the middle part of the decade.

No mellenium culture is part of 2000s culture. It describes the 2000s the most. The entire Y2K era was the most definitive part of the decade. That's why the 2000s started in 1999 and the 90s were gone by then as well.

That's when the series started declining. It remained on Saturday mornings for another decade. But wouldn't reach its mid 90s glory. I'm glad I caught reruns on Toon Disney/Jetix! :D

Pokémon came on in 1998 over here. They weren't really competing. Power Rangers came on Saturday mornings and Pokémon came on after school. Someone posted a chart with the ratings I think there was a bump with In Space and it carried on a bit to Lost Galaxy.

In 2000 I remember I cared more about Sailor Moon for Saturday mornings but that's also a late '90s show lol.

Dude, Windows 95 was absolutely huge when it came out and it definitely did make it into 1999. 98 was popular all the way up 'til early 2003. Even as recent as the XP days, computers cost as much as 800 bucks for a decent set up so most people weren't rushing out to get a new OS every time it was released. Even some new 'reduced price' computers had the previous OS.

And 98 was a great OS. It got a rocky start due to it's slight instability and sh!tty virus protection but after it's update in 1999 it became very solid and I'd say it was best we had back then.

I'm pretty sure that Windows XP wasn't that popular until late 2003/early 2004. Hell, I even remember using Windows ME around 2003, before having my dad upgrading it to Windows XP in 2004. Whoever used XP around late 2001 to mid 2003 are those who were upper middle class to rich. 98 on the other hand was used until 2000 and ME sort of took it over around 2001/2002. For Windows 95 and 98, I could already tell they were the XPs of the mid-late 90s. The only people who use 95/98 are those who wanted to play 90s computer games made for Windows. Everyone used it until the mid 2000s, just like how people used XP today.

XP got more traction around early-mid '03 when most people started upgrading but I agree with your other point. Computers were more expensive back then. But... 98 wasn't used until... 2000!?

Well, Windows ME was the alternative for Windows 98 and 2000 back then. I somehow got it on my family's computer back then, and I was okay with it until my dad upgraded to XP a couple years later.

Well, Windows ME was the alternative for Windows 98 and 2000 back then. I somehow got it on my family's computer back then, and I was okay with it until my dad upgraded to XP a couple years later.

It wasn't the case for me, but it's still not one of my favorites.


Not a very good alternative, though.

Nope, not a sarcastic comment. I meant it, 1998, was so far, the best year in my life
so far.

It's also partly pop culture that made me like 1998 so much. It was just too much awesomeness for me to swallow. South Park, Pokemon, Power Rangers, Nickelodeon, The Simpsons, Animorphs, Goosebumps, Disney Channel, Rugrats, Barbie, G.I. Joe's muscles. :-X  :-X Too much greatness! :.sweat:.

But that doesn't mean it's a great operating system. I'm sure it was the ultimate late 90s operating system to some, but it wasn't as great as Windows 2000, XP, or 7 overtime.

I never said it was... I was comparing it to Windows 95, in which 98 was better. That's why I said it was superior. As for Windows 2000, 98 was actually better than Windows 2000. But XP and later were much faster and better.

XP got more traction around early-mid '03 when most people started upgrading but I agree with your other point. Computers were more expensive back then. But... 98 wasn't used until... 2000!? Where'd you hear that? ??? 98 was very popular in 1999. ME was never really that popular though... 2000 was fairly big, though.

I found ME very unstable and rushed. Total sh!t. 8-P

I think maybe people just want to use a basic version of Windows, instead of going for Windows 8 (which absolutely sucks) or Windows 10 (while it's still good, but not brilliant).

Then if people had this logic, then people would have Windows 10 more than 7. But alas, they stuck with Windows 7.

As a person who did have ME, it wasn't that bad. I think people got upset over it because of how it was supposed to be better than 2000, but got negative results. To me, it just seems like another operating system made by Microsoft. Nothing special, really. To be honest, Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, and ME just seems the same to me.

No, Windows 98 was way better than Windows 95 in many ways. It wasn't the same. They fixed a lot of bugs and the operating system was much more stable. Most people preferred Windows 98 as it got rid of annoying bugs from Windows 95 and it was slightly faster as well.

But it's still in the 9x cohort. In anyway, it's just an updated version of Windows 95. I could say the same thing about Windows 7, but it actually had a few things different compared to Vista.

Not to step on his toes, but it just so happens that 1998 is probably my favorite year, too. ;)

I guess if I had to explain why as simply as I could, I'd just say that it was the height of my childhood, particularly that summer. I was 10/11 years old at the time and life revolved around riding bikes around the neighborhood all day, hanging out with my friends until the sun went down, watching Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa every day to see who was pulling ahead in the home run chase, rushing home from school in the afternoons to watch Toonami, first learning about what sex was thanks to the endlessly televised Bill Clinton impeachment hearings, listening to fun crap on the radio like Savage Garden and Shawn Mullins, enjoying the waning days of Saturday morning cartoons with One Saturday Morning and the Fox Kids Club, and scouring every nook and cranny of Peach's Castle to find out if Luigi really was in Super Mario 64.

It was an awesome time indeed, and, because we didn't have the internet, it seems so much more old school and "innocent" than today. And, yes, I do know how corny that sounds. ;D

I know it was distinct, but I define the 2000s from Y2K primarily, not the mid/late 00s. The Y2K era was one of the biggest features of the 2000s decade, and the most memorable as well.

Just because a mayor from New York City left office in New Years Day of 1990, that didn't really mean the 90s officially started by then. It still felt like the 80s to a lot of people at the time, even though some could argue with that.


That was the first post-1989 event. After David Dinkins took office, we were no longer living in the late '80s (as you pointed out). He left office in 1993, the first year of the mid '90s culturally. Early '90s shows  (I.e. - Doogie Howser MD, The Wonder Years, and Quantum Leap) were going off the air at that time, so I do not consider any part of 1993 to be early '90s. I remember anticipating Clinton's term at the very start of January in '93, so '93 never felt like the early '90s to me. It was a new time and a boring year for pop culture (in my honest opinion).

But it's not like it affected anybody's lives outside of New York City. Besides, Dinkins was elected as mayor in 1989. He was only appointed as mayor in 1990. That's not really a big difference compared to The Simpsons premiering during the 1989-1990 season.

Woah, I know most of these :o

Crazy to think that era was 20 years ago

Another thing that freaks me out is how some revolutionary video games are turning 20, which means they're as old now as Atari was back then.

Think Mario Kart 64, Final Fantasy 7 and... GOLDENEYE

Third Eye Blind- Semi-Charmed Life
Big Mountain- Baby, I Love Your Way
No Doubt- Just A Girl
Cardigans- Lovefool
Shania Twain- That Don't Impress Me Much

Plus, WCBS played Mariah Carey NINE times yesterday, meaning that the Clinton era is certainly upon us on the format FKA "Oldies".

Even the REMAKE of It's My Life from No Doubt has turned up, and that's from the core 2000s!

That said, the late '90s still feel "modern" relatively speaking compared to anything earlier, most because it was the first sub-era that was part of the "Internet Age" thanks to the proper marketing, and social media is just a different segment that utilizes the web, along with 3D videogames being the more popular than 2D as well as computer animation more than just Toy Story and Claymation. But I'll bet a few were saying the same thing back in the mid-late '90s when the late '70s had PCs/VCRs/electronic synthesizer songs for the first time. It just shows that nostalgia changes over time as each generation matures and ages and each successive youth generation (a focus on the jr. high school to college years) comes into fruition. Like Oldies becoming Classic/Greatest Hits, MTV Classic (formerly VH1 classic) focuses on the Clinton and even George W. Bush years as its focus, with any '80s now just segmented into its "classic videos" block. Remember when VH1 Classic was '60s/'70s/early '80s during its infancy in the early 2000s? That's long gone. The truth is that someone who graduated high school in the late '90s is now over 35, and many feel that's when advertisers no longer see these people as the young, hip demo and the focus is more on nostalgia for a time before responsibilities.

No the early 90s were unique as well. It certainly wasn't an extension of the 80s, except for maybe the year 1990.


1990 was the strongest year of the '90s, in my opinion. The Little Mermaid (my cousin's favorite Disney Renaissance film) was still in theaters at the start of the year, Roseanne was the most popular program on TV and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures were sold out everywhere. Those were all very '90s things (they were introduced in the '80s).

I think people overstate how much like the early 90's 1989 was.


'89 was the final stepping stone towards the early '90s. In hindsight, it felt more like a prototypical early '90s year than the other years of the '80s. At the same time, shows introduced in the '70s like TJ and the All Night Theater were last seen in 1989. So, '89 wasn't completely like an early '90s year, but it was close.

I'd say though when Lithuania pleaded for independence in the spring of 1990, that was the death knell for the '80s politically, with the time between the Berlin Wall coming down and Czechoslovakia cheering for a more democratic government in December 1989 following the "Velvet Revolution" being other key political transition moments, much more so than Reagan/Thatcher leaving office. In the Anglosphere, it was much more gradual given that there was no communism, but it was marked by a shift to the left, the revival of the women's movement, LGBT becoming more mainstream, and the rise of the PC movement.

Only the last two months of 1989 feel early '90s IMO, as also it was around that time that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became a household name, mostly due to being a hot toy for the 1989 holiday season. Sure, they first became noticeable for the 1988 shopping season, by this point, the fad was everywhere).

Back to the topic, as The Backstreet Boys performed and appeared on ABC's The Bachelor earlier this week. Ford in their recent TV ad for celebrating 40 years of top-selling pickup trucks, in addition to showing what a typical 1977 and 1987 scene looked like, had their 1997 scene with a tower of CDs and a late-era CRT TV with a silver border around the screen before skipping to the present. However, just like television itself compared to the past, the nostalgia of this time doesn't bring people together like it used to as remember, back then, there were lots of "I hate the '90s" posts and that stigma still lingers for the 35+ generation who were the creators of the '80s nostalgia, and this is especially true for the late '90s who see this as "after my time". Plus, with the exception of some of the pop like the aforementioned BB, this era was much more fractured in terms of popular trends unlike the more togetherness of previous eras. You had your 3D platform fan, your Pokefan, your American Pie geek, your Sailor Moon fan, your Third Eye Blind person, your Electronica nerd, your early fanfic.com person, your synthetic fashion lover, your retro '70s lover, and more that shows how varied and vague this era was compared to others.

After looking at the late 00s nostalgia topic, this one needed to be revived as well!

I have noticed over the course of this year for fashion that platform shoes have made a comeback, and so have Jean skirts. I have even checked out late 90s fashion from shows of that time, and they weren't THAT different from earlier eras.

Oh, and a few months ago I was looking at Mario Kart 64 on the emulator, and the graphics were not terrifying at all. It gave me the chills of excitement to play it again (along with the other games I enjoyed.) :D :); however, I couldn't play it because I don't have an Xbox controller which would work best for me >:(. Damn, those games the bomb!!!!!!

That's because it's on emulator. They update the graphics to make it look better. I've played MK64 on the N64 recently, maybe two years ago. It wasn't a looker from what I remember ;D

Still the best battle mode though.  :D

Most likely because it was in a resolution lower than 480.

Totally man! I loved that game mode :)

My senior year was 2016-2017. Big crimped hair, striped shirts and mom jeans were big with girls, while boys had drab green or black hoodies or brown leather jackets, wispy shortish hair, nerd glasses and dark jeans. Both genders wore plaid, but not as much as the last few years. I think that all is quite late 90s-ish?
