    These times, they are a changing.... good bye Geocities

    For us "old timers" we can remember when almost everyone had their own free Geocities webpage.

    A couple months ago MSN groups closed their door, now Geocities has announced they will be turning off the lights later this year.

    As Bob Zimmerman once said... These times they are a changing,

    No way...wow. No joke they are.

    But come one, Midi Loop? Who the hell is Midi Loop, its all about Bob Dylan!

    ...

    Hopefully Midi Loop isnt something completely different but in hindsight i think it might be haha.

    There goes 3/4 of my website I built years ago:
    My woodworking pictures
    Tropical fish pics and info
    my Bonsai pics
    Fossil pics
    Photography pics
    Cat pics

    Better look now if you want. LOL

    The ones that are safe is my Carnivorous site and Gecko site. I use my free space with my DSL account.
    The only one above that I have to find a home for is my woodworking pages.....Maybe the tropical fish info.

    Yeah, AOL dropped personal websites a while ago too. Sign of the times. The free email account I've had for over 10 years went paid only just last month. Not many freebies support POP3. Gmail does though.

    Even though I don't currently have a web page, I remember using GeoCities back in the day. I learned a lot of the basics (internet, linking, basic graphic editing, etc.) by teaching myself on GeoCities and creating my own web site.

    I'm sad to hear it's going.
