Yahoo shutting down Geocities

Post by andrewwski » April 22nd, 2009, 7:52 pm

Yikes. One of the, if not the, biggest free website hosts will be gone later this year. The amount of stuff on Geocities is enormous. This means a ton of content on the internet will be...gone.

Well I can move anything over to the wiki that hasn't already been moved. :|

Yeah starpug I think you should make a new section for the events that have links on that website, on their wiki to copy and paste the links

2010 States: 3 Compute This, 6 Meteorology
2011 Regionals: 1 Write It/Do It, 4 Compute This, 5 Meteorology, 3 Team

Since that is basically just a page of external links, you could just save it (File-Save As in IE or Firefox) and keep an HTML version of that page. Then upload that.

Page hasn't been updated since 1997 it looks like - which explains why a lot of the links are bad anyway.

A good possibility would imply that it's somewhat likely.

It's not.

It's extremely unlikely. Google doesn't need that mess on their hands. Would make absolutely no sense from their perspective.
