RIP Geocities

The plug has been pulled on Geocities.

I found the files for my old Geocities site on my computer and I uploaded it to my website:
http://www.vincentcheung.ca/geocities/

I made that site back in 1997 and it's pretty hilarious!

Things I love about it:
  1. "You have come to the Best Web Page on the Internet. With great background music and hundreds of links to the best web pages throughout the World Wide Web, how can you go wrong?"

  2. MIDI background music! (You can even change the background music and there's a great selection of 90's music!)

  3. JavaScript pop-up on the homepage

  4. Frames!

  5. Ghetto logo

  6. Link and banner exchange galore

  7. Most of the links don't work anymore because the websites have been closed down

  8. The instructions for adding the site to your bookmarks and setting it to your homepage is for Netscape 3.0 and Windows 95

  9. "Page me by ICQ"

  10. Google is not listed under "Search Engines"

  11. Beakman's World in the TV section

  12. The website predates Starcraft as it's not listed under "Video and Computer Games"

  13. The selection of "Free 'Must-Have' Programs" is rather amusing

Love it!

I also love the "secret link" and the lime-on-green text. This is the Internet I remember from high school!
