PostSubject: Geocities is Closing Down   Sun May 17, 2009 8:23 pm

"Later in the year" Yahoo's Geocities pages will be going away.

Many of us may have bookmarks to geocities sites - be sure to visit them and save them to your computer.

When AOL's Hometown sites went away the screaming was heard 'round the world angry - because no matter how much warning they gave (and they gave quite a bit), there were still site owners who didn't back up or move their sites - everything was GONE. Gone, gone, gone. :affraid:

Since Yahoo! hasn't given a specific go-away date, it's better to do this sooner rather than later!

I use Firefox for internet stuff. When I go to Bookmarks/Organize Bookmarks, I see a list of the names of my bookmarks (favorites?) next to their web address. This will be my first step - I'll look for sites that are at geocities.com, then I'll go to the sites and decide if I want to print or save or otherwise store the information there.

Someone else might need to step in with Internet Explorer info here.

BTW, y'all: My geocities.com Bullseye Quilt is how you found me and how I found you lovehearts Somewhere along the way I 'broke' it, but I have backed up all of my info so I can rebuild it when I find a new place to host my pages.
