xkcd: Nachos, the end of an era, Geocities closes.

Well a special xkcd comic today to the theme of Geocities, the free website hosting company almost any nerd cool guy/gal made their mark – including yours truly somewhere down SiliconValley (97/98). Around that time, most of the javascript was thanks to The Javascript Planet, the CGI-Scripts were mostly from Matt Wright‘s ScriptArchive and most webmasters had a Fido7 script somewhere. After musing with GeoCities for a year or so I moved over and did what anyother kid would do, made a games site on FreeServers called GamesGalore. Essentially I reviewed demos I got from the PCGamer magazine at the time ($15 a pop!). Made no money but it was all good fun.

The days of marquees, ‘optimised for Netscape or IE’ camps, frames (GamesGalore had it!) and lots of flashing animated gifs, because that was where it was at.

No point pasting the comic here, check out xkcd and enjoy the memories.

I swear that’s the only time you’ll ever see a marquee or a blinking text on this site!
