"[W]ebsites and hosting services should not be “fads” any more than forests and cities should be fads – they represent countless hours of writing, of editing, of thinking, of creating. They represent their time, and they represent the thoughts and dreams of people now much older, or gone completely. There’s history here. Real, honest, true history. So Archive Team did what it could, as well as other independent teams around the world, and some amount of Geocities was saved."
Now, one year later, they have announced that nearly a terabyte of web history
will soon be made available to the public as a 900GB torrent file

As Geocities is officially turned off
for good tomorrow I'd like to pay my respects.
I'll miss you old friend, the internet won't be the same without you.

Tired of the current web? Have all the cool domain names already been registered? The second web
bills itself as
geocities 2.0 with a web browser-esque interface stuck on top of it "a completely new World Wide Web. A new Web Browser, a new domain name system and completely new websites."

was once the darling of the online world to every-man wanted to post his own web site. Free space for all, and all were happy. Then Yahoo! bought it, and the dot-com collapse occurred. Now, GeoCities offers new premium packages
, offering more features. But at $19.95 before you can even having scripting, traditional web hosts greatly undercut Yahoo!'s offering, and offer more in terms of features still.

There must be something
about Geocities that attracts the most unusual people to create such enriching websites. What it is, I'm not sure.

No, nothing to do with music. Virtual Dub is open source capturing software with built-in capture support which can often use as much as 90% of your hard disk's maximum sustained transfer rate -- as high as 10 megabytes per second -- without dropping a frame.
We just tested it at work with our ATI All In Wonder 128 and were impressed with the crystal clear results.
