GeoCities, a free Web hosting service that achieved fame in the mid-90s, died Thursday at the Yahoo headquarters in Silicon Valley. GeoCities was 15 years old.
Back in the days I had a GeoCities account too, but that was mostly neglected because of my Tripod sites. One of them is still working too, too bad I didn't have one of those visitor counters that were so popular in that era.
Fast forward couple years, when I was at Cal it's full of Sun machines. Those Ultrasparcs were slow, the userland was strange and difficult to get used to. Over time the department that I worked for started to switch away from Sparcs and Solaris, and their coolness factor faded.
