You linked to a Geocities site? Aren't they limited to 10 page views a day (or something equally ridiculous)?

The sound of relief as I hit Preview before posting the same comment as three other posters.

Oops. Didn't even think about the geocities thing. Sorry. Well, if you'd like to visit the site sometime, it's a series of links to mp3s of pasta. Seriously. "8 ounces of elbow macaroni being poured from a cardboard box into a plastic container. 59KB; 8 ounces of elbow macaroni being poured from a plastic container into a cardboard box. 56KB; 1 pasta ruffle rolling down a 3-1/8" diameter cardboard tube 40-1/4" long into a 14" diameter stainless steel wok. 24KB; 3 pasta ruffles rolling down a cardboard tube into a wok. 45KB; etc"

If that's not the best of the web, I don't know what is!

Damn, that sounds hot. You might be able to make an entire song out of something like that.

Sounds interesting, Grumblebee. I didn't notice it was from you, and feared it was only another video of someone growing pasta. Pasta makes some fun sounds.

With Google giving everyone gigs and gigs of storage and bandwidth, doesn't Geocities feel just the least bit chincy? Hello?! What is the point?! jeebus.

Grumblebee, it's not a bad idea to preload these sites into the Coral Cache and post that link in addition, even with big sites.

It's pretty easy to do.... you insert .nyud.net:8090 after the hostname, but before the actual URL. So the Coralized version of this thread would become http://www.metafilter.com.nyud.net:8090/mefi/49852.

Heh, Coral is very, very slow right now, so it's no panacea. :)

Since the geocities site refusilli to load, you might want to give these guys a call instead. Click on 'recipes'.
