    I just realised that there's kids on the WWW who are younger than Geocities.

    Great xkcd tribute though.

    Rest in peace, the .gif e-mail button!

    And goodbye, extremely badly coded mess of tributes to bad bands!

    This is why i am happy it is gone, too many poorly designed sites. On the other hand I do agree it should be backed up. I have 10TB here on my desk!

    +1. I was reading the news to my wife, and when I mentioned the words "looped midi background music" and "animated gifs" she immediately started singing the Hamster Dance song.

    Useless bit of trivia: The Hamster Dance music is the the first part of the intro to Disney's animated feature, Robin Hood. The first few times I heard it it drove me crazy. I knew the rhythm was too familiar, then it finally hit me as I hummed it the rest of the day.

    I fondly remember my first web page on Geocities. It was horrible. Like everyone else, my page was nothing more than an About Me list with a table full of links to other sites that were actually useful. And I'm not ashamed to admit that I made far too much use of the star field background.

    Jupp.. My fist homepage was at geocities, and web.archive.org actually saved my front page. Although without the cool background and fascinating animated gifs! :rock:

    I think it should be part of "Museum of Internet" since they do that with kitchen-furniture from the '70! Not a bad comparison if I'll say so myself..:D
