Hi all,

This week's poll question is about that "ancient" free web hosting provider called GeoCities. Discuss here if you ever put a website on GeoCities back in the day, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Do you mean that I have to stop telling the kids that the internet is forever?

I used Geocities many years ago, it was real funny because using the free version they had extreme bandwidth restrictions. Someone would check out your site for a short time and then there would be a message that the bandwidth was exceeded and to come back in an hour or so, etc. It was a real pain. Even working on the website, same thing.

Then when they told us to save all the important info off the free sites, I had a heck of a time remembering my logins etc, because I replaced PC's in the interim and didn't save the info. I'm actually just glad it is over with LOL...it was a real pain!

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I never had one but I had a lot of friends that did. Everytime I turned around someone was giving me a link to one. Most were just bad.
