In case you didn't hear about it, Yahoo is closing down Geocities later this year. (No, they don't have an alternate free hosting site--but they do encourage users to switch to their non-free service!)

I know a lot of folks have old websites on Geocities with material they may not have archived elsewhere, so if you do, you might want to go get it before it's gone.

Mine is fortunately mostly backed up, and the site's been transferred over to chronarchy.com for a while.

In many ways, I'll be happy to see it go. . . a lot of pages that should direct to my pages are currently directing to GeoCities. . . I haven't been bothered to remove the old page. Now, I can make an inventory of what's there and transfer it away or set redirects in the face of impending doom for the site.

I can't say as I'll mourn the loss of the crappy teen pagan sites that dot its landscape, though. . . I don't think we'll lose much good information, but we'll lose a lot of bad info.

I hope you're right; the main thing I wonder about is good pages that were essentially finished products, that haven't been updated because they were pretty much done, and the creators have moved on since then.

I think that nowadays the teen pagans go to MySpace--lots of blood-red text on highly graphic backgrounds, sparkly fonts and animated unicorns are still to be found there!
