OMG!

*sniff* It was a great place and although I haven't really gone near it for about 6 years, it's still a significant chapter to close.

They would have to have a whole collection of some of the first content to greet the internet in the early days.

Seriously, I would love to see their server and copies of their early pages put into an internet museum or something and left there with a heap of terminals for people to surf it at 36kpbs and relive the experience of the internet from the mid 90's

WHAT
Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.

Aww. I feel old when this stuff happens. It's almost like when they stopped selling VHS-tapes. ._.

Still have a few that are all right to play, most of my fave films are still on VHS.
