    It's actually a pretty huge deal to me watching Geocities close down.

    It's also scary that all that's really change, is animated rotating "email me" icons have been replaced with animated glitter text ;)

    Mine too...back when I first learned html. Think I still have a copy of my first "site" somewhere lol.

    For some reason I thought geocities was gone a long time ago.

    kinda sad. I never built a site there, but remember visiting many geocities sites from aol ( :rofl: ) when I started playing online 10 or so years ago.

    Here's a link to the Yahoo! FAQs about GeoCities:

    www.reocities.com has made an attempt to backup most of geocities sites. Dude was working nights in order to make it within the 6 days. He is still processing the data, so not everything works. But he grabbed terabytes of data.
