Bad news for those of you who love animated gifs and the <blink> tag: GeoCities shut down this past Thursday. Later this year all existing sites will go offline.
My first website was on Geocities. It had auto-playing midi files and an animated spinning globe gif on a starfield background. And no content to speak of. Well, except for a crappy novel I started when I was a kid, called Ragnarok. Good times!
