Not sure what was first, but from Amazon it was a VHS of the Beetlejuice cartoons, and from eBay it was all five issues of Wild Cartoon Kingdom. I remember the seller was really helpful, sending me emails with how to set up PayPal accounts and all sorts.

I think it was Jonah Lomu Rugby for the Playstation. For some reason I was amazed when it arrived :lol:

A CD called 'Roller' by one of my fave bands, Goblin, back in mid-1998. Think I bought all the remastered Goblin stuff released around that time, still got them all. :D

Think it was a saturn game, my memory is a total mess though so it could have been anything.

Think it was just a pack of blank CD-R's off Maplin's - but do remember being really chuffed at having discovered my crappy 'Solo' bankcard I had at the time could actually be used to buy stuff on the internet. I'd always just assumed it wouldn't be accepted. :lol:

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

The expansion for Total Annihilation, the Core Contingency bigbox not long after its release way back in 1998! It was from Cavedog's own store in the US...shipping was more than the game itself :oops:

Still got it sitting here :D

First thing I ever bought online was a huge great big double buggy for my two kids, around 2002 I suppose, and I have no idea why that particular purchase had to be made through the internet, really :?

Stole my dads credit card in 2000 and bought myself a Yamada region free DVD player from Amazon for £80. Went to my dad a few days later (after slipping the credit card back in his wallet) and gave him £80 cash and just said thanks....first thing I bought, and I think my dad still hates me for it even now...oh well :lol:
