Subtle Updates and Other Historical Back Steps

Mind the Gap

I spent the last two days watching football and fixing up a few odds & ins around my sites. Probably the biggest change is the top menu. I’ve tried to match the style across each major site, including font and minor format changes. I also added my 360voice Dynamic Usersbars as a top-level site.

Pardon the Dust and Debris

ZX81 Computer

I’m in the process of updating the old flat design of this site into a more dynamic one. The original site was designed in the nineties for use on GeoCities and its various requirements and stipulations. Now that GeoCities is dead and the content has been moved to better hosting, I’m taking the opportunity to migrate the site to WebAPP.

So Long GeoCities, Thanks For The Memories

Mind the Gap

Well, as of today my GeoCities site of the last 12 years is no more. I’m a bit saddened as it has been a place of comfort, seeing me through different ISP’s and such. It is because of GeoCities that I use Yahoo! mail, even if Yahoo! then turned around and removed the best features of GeoCities.

I’m not surprised by its shuttering in these times of Web 2.0 and the emergence of the Social Internet site.

Mind the Gap

Yahoo! will be shutting down Geocities tomorrow, 10/26/09, which means an end to my old LEGO and ZX81 website. Although I hadn’t updated those sites much since Yahoo! turned off ftp access, Geocities had remained my presence on the web for almost 12 years. Sad to say, it will be sad to see it go.

Nearing the End of an Era

Mind the Gap

Needless to say, one of the many reasons I started Reid’s For Fun was because of Yahoo!’s neutering of GeoCities: removal of ftp and a paltry 4.2MB hourly limit. It was, however, my friend in the hey day of Internet growth and I am saddened at its (un)timely demise.

Updated My Geocities Site

Mind the Gap

I updated my GeoCities Imagination web site the other day to add a link to this site. I’m really disappointed with GeoCities since Yahoo! picked it up. Ever since they dropped ftp, making it a pain to update it, I haven’t added any content. Their update tools aren’t bad, just a pain.
