I use chopsticks to eat with in public for no other reason than to piss Maddox right off.

^ Remember this?

I believe there were still Gopher and WAIS listings in the '96 edition. Wonder how many of those are still up.

Holy shiat yes. I believe it even had adult only sites listed.


It did. My parents gave it to me as a gift. They tore out the section for "sex", but missed "x-rated resources."

No love for http://www.aerith.net/ ? First set up in 1995 updated almost daily and the graphics haven't changed a bit (still a fantastic database for comet observing)

How the hell has taco.com not sold to Taco Bell?

People occasionally email me about buying the domain milk.com from me. I used to respond to such requests with, "How much are you offering?" These days, if you don't mention a number, I probably won't mail you back. However, let me warn you that I like the name and I have a reasonably well-paying job, so it'll have to be a pretty damn good offer. Note that a number (in whole U.S. dollars) which includes fewer than 8 significant digits to the left of the decimal point does not constitute "pretty damn good" in my book. That is, if you're not offering $10 million, I'm not interested.

/me is not *me*.
//But I've had e-mail discussions with Bornstein.


It's not pizza. But, once-upon-a-time, I'm sure it could of gone for deep in the 8 digits.

I don't know if I've ever googled for 'milk'. But I google for 'MILF' so often, that everytime I try to type 'milk' it comes out as 'MILF'

SNPP.com has been around since at least '96, and is still sporting a very "classic" look.

Hey! I'm on there a few times.

uber humper: Lunchlady: Are any of the websites besides Alta Vista still used by those companies? Can anyone find the oldest still in use website?

Oldest domain still in use for what it was originally created for is probably nordu.net. Next is probably bbn.com.

symbolics.com is a sad little museum compared to the great Lisp machine company it was.

I am deeply saddened that think.com now leads to thinkquest, not Oracle, though that would sadden me for other reasons.

Rockstone: Oldest webpage I could find! Almost as old as me: http://pmichaud.com/grape/


Cool, I remember that guy's site. Found it linked on one called "The Useless Pages" back in the days before cable internet. The grape one's not quite as funny as his Strawberry Pop-Tart Blow-Torches

ThinkQuest was created in 1996 by Allan H. Weis under his nonprofit Advanced Network and Services. The service was acquired by the Oracle Education Foundation in 2002

OK, now I need to crawl into a bottle. Don't let me out until Oracle is gone for good.

Why does everyone in this town use Altavista? Is it 1997?

/Disclaimer: I used Altavista exclusively for Babelfish until, eh, Google Translate started getting more awesome I guess
//Knew it was *far* from perfect but a good start anyhow
///Excite was my first internet homepage that I remember... oh, good times

I made it a point to see that house while I lived in San Diego. I can't believe that 7 years later that site is still up.
