Today I went on a bit of a nostalgia trip through my old usenet / newsgroup posts. It was a bittersweet feeling seeing who I used to be...

...but, what's more important is that I discovered an internet fossil!

I recommended a small rpg fansite to someone on usenet in early 2003. To my surprise, the thing is still online & pretty much unchanged!

Love finding those *vintage* sites in the wild :)

@FredBednarski "adobe flash player is no longer supported" oh no

(ofc we can prob fix that but yk)

@pixouls At least this wasn't one of those sites that required flash. If I remember correctly the only flash on it was some animated graphics.

Also, this:
"View this site with at least Internet Explorer 5.0, Flash Player, a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and medium text size, preferably in full-screen mode (by pressing F11 in IE)."

@FredBednarski omgg

i like how they also have a simplified option in php

@FredBednarski Thats so cool. I miss all the old Shadowrun sites that used to be on the webring and Dumpshock.
