Internet Explorer 3 Midnight Madness T-Shirt

Microsoft Midnight Madness T-Shirt that was awarded to the first 10,000 people who downloaded the Internet Explorer 3 Web browser, which released at midnight on 13th August 1996.

This was all very US centric, so the midnight release was actually 8:00am UK time, and so our donor got to work at about 8:30am, downloaded the new browser, and was asked to fill out his details in order to receive a t-shirt, which he received a few weeks later, as did a few other people in his office!

Kindly donated by Chris Walsh.
