Sad (sorta) Internet News

Geocities is shutting down this year. Any of you remember that place? It's where I first created a website. David's Islands.... Oh those were the day... Of bad designs and horrid graphics with slow download speeds... I think I still have a back up of that site on a disc somewhere. Heh. Scary thought.

Anyway, this is relevant to the PK because David's Islands was replaced by Preachers Kid when I became a PK. The old address www.geocities.com/heartland/bluffs/6032 now redirects to here.

On another note, my old site The Background Island is still there. www.geocities.com/bgisland. Heh. And Christian Graphics Island (www.geocities.com/bgisland/cgisland though I don't know where the index page went.) is what became ChristGraphics.com.

It's like a giant piece of the Internets History is dieing......

btw, is it a good thing that I can still remember that long url from my first site after over ten years?
