"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
- 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
, 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
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.
