    No big loss..
    geocities sucked..

    I too had a geocities page..made it around 1997, because I had no other hosting options at the time..
    if more than 1 person a week looked at your page, for more than 2 minutes, geocities would lock up your page for "exceeding bandwidth"..(ok, im exaggerating..but not by much!

    I will copy over my Bonsai and Aquarium pages that were there and just burn them to a CD..just for posterity..I might re-upload some of the bonsai pages eventually..

    if you page is already gone, you should still be able to access and copy much of it thanks to:

    Oh man, talk about memories. When I was in junior high I made an "offical" Dave Matthews Band website on geocities. Sorry to hear about everyone losing content on serious sites. Can you downlaod it and rehost the content easily, or is it just the pain of getting the new URL out there?

    guys! I know that google offers a page hosting service as well. I would assume this would be lasting longer:

    pages.google.com
