The sites from 1996 (or earlier) up until the dot-com crash.

The type we don't see too much anymore, the type that requires the Wayback Machine to see again. Old webpages created with simple HTML and barely any JavaScript. Maybe some flash, little to no CSS, no PhP, no MySql. Just a webpage, where you look at content. Not much interaction will go on. No comment boxes, there's no membership. But there's tons of content. Some single-serving (i.e, Hampsterdance). You can only interact with the people who run it via E-Mail. Some hosted by GeoCities.

A bit of throwback to those who saw that type of site. I'm pretty sure you all did, at least even once.

Just a bit of wondering, let's talk about it. Maybe show some links to sites that look like those.

here's one that still exists:


Quite frankly, I find these sites fascinating. They manage to do so much with little code. A piece of history of the internet. It's like looking at the relics of an old discarded tomb in Egypt.

Aren't they fascinating?



I was putting together a list for possible websites and services that might help with music promotion and came across this one: http://www.musicdish.com
Apparently it's one of the big players.

OMG. that website has skifree. I have been looking for that game for ages, but I didn't know the name. I used to play it for hours at my aunts house xD


I knew I'd rekindle someone's childhood with SkiFree at some point.
