RIP GeoCities

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!
