  1. The Original Space Jam site appears to have fallen offline. Welcome to the Webspace Jam - Internet Archive Blogs

      Too bad; i used to visit that site on old computers regularly as one that would work still.   Hopefully they keep the Bob Dole Election site up from 1996 for years to come; another "go to" for me.

      Here it is; they just moved it. 


      Had to find it with google. Don’t know why it didn’t work when I typed the address in. Maybe it’s because I left out the ending slash.

  2. If you want to save a bunch of pages at once, search the site you want to save you want to save using DuckDuckGo, then copy & past the URL into the  here: http://web.archive.org/save Check off "Save Outlinks" & press save.

      You can use Gigablast in place of DuckDuckGo, tho I think DDG might have a more complete index. https://gigablast.com/

  3. I'm still trying to add pages from Yahoo Answers to the Wayback Machine; if you know of any interesting pages add them & send me a link.

    1. CPUWIZ


      What is Yahoo?

    2. pacman000


      A web directory which expanded to offer a news service, email service, hosting service, & a dozen or more other services. They dropped the directory... 3 years ago? They were bought be a telecom company a few years ago, & they've been selling off or closing services ever sense then.

  4. Trying to archive some Yahoo Answers Video Game posts using the Wayback Machine. It's shocking how many are coming up as "1st Archive." A lot of data'll be lost for ever in a month. :(

    1. BydoEmpire


      Such is the nature of life, though thanks for your efforts archiving whatever you're able to!

      I'm still trying to figure out how babies are formed over there.  :lol:  I'm gonna go Ask Jeeves in a minute.

    3. pacman000


      Jeeves is no help at all with that question; he just wants to talk about Yahoo Answers: how is babby formed, Ask.com ;)

  5. Goodbye Yahoo Answers; you will be missed. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080719144932AAfHLpP

      Argh, beat me to it. LOL

  6. Below is a video about the Last Analog TV stations in the U.S.



    1. GoldLeader


      Is the video on VHS and rentable at the last Blockbuster?   That'd be fun.  

  7. Presenting: the Video Game Article Archive: Video Game Article Archive - Index (neocities.org)

  8. I hate cleaning out things...

    1. moycon


      We all have to pick our nose at some point. It's just part of life.

    2. pacman000


      True. But i think it's best to use a q-tip in that situation.

    3. Keatah


      Q-tips don't offer tactile feedback and grip traction like fingerprint ridges do. Very satisfying when a loogie breaks free and slides out. The air seems cooler right away.

  9. It’s the time of year

    When the world starts to sneeze

    Every nose I hear

    Seem to sniff

    Yes it’s springtime,

    And there’s pollen in the air!

    1. CPUWIZ


      I have a solution for that, don't be around noses.

  10. I see lots of blogs, but few sites organized by the alphabet. Why don’t more websites use alphabetical indexes? Do they think dictionaries are hard to use?

  11. Super Mario HQ is gone. :(

    1. DoctorSpuds


      Mario shall die March 31'st 2021, so says Nintendo.

    2. pacman000


      Apparently, the guy who owned the domain name decided not to renew it: http://vgf.com/viewtopic.php?f=152&t=102801

  12. There are two kinds of song, the kind you can sing to the tune of "Gilligan's Island," & the kind you cannot.

    1. joeatari1


      Well, sit right back and you'll hear a tale

      A tale of a fateful trip

      That started from a tropic port

      Aboard this tiny ship...

      The Usotsuki

      It's basically a sloppy version of Common Meter.  Another example of that is House of the Rising Sun.  ("Amazing Grace" is a stricter example of Common Meter.  Needless to say it's called Common Meter for a reason. 😉)

  13. All Facebook users pay for the service. The majority pay with their attention & data for an easy hosting/conversation platform; a select few pay with money for access to the attention & data said platform attracts & collects.

      Jpegs for sale at auction, encoded with blockchain Non-Fungible Tokens. It's the latest form of art collecting. Many of them go into the millions. Like the first Tweet. It's just a craze though.

      And some pay with their very souls!   Muhuwawahahahahaaaaa!







      (OOOoooh!  I better hide this comment way down here and add it 26 hours later....I DON'T WANT THEM COMING AFTER ME ;)

  14. If the chain didn't fit your saw, why are the teeth burnt down to nubs? 

  15. “Must you nickel & dime me for everything!”

    ”Yes sir; this is a 5 & 10 cent store.”

  16. There should be a sequel to Rear Window. I’m sure the guy got off; after all, it was Perry Mason.

  17. What do you call a rattlesnake with a toothache?





    A cottonmouth.

  18. Bye Fry's. :(

    1. doctorclu


      Come share some memories!


  19. My CD drive won't open, & my PC won't read the Cd that's in it. :(

      Take a stiff clip and firm push to get it open. Once you do open up a thread and we can discuss fixing it permanently.


    3. bluejay


       Aw, what are you gonna put your morning coffee on now?

    4. MrMaddog


      That's why I hate CD drives & players, too many moving parts that get broken.

  20. “I feel beat & I’m not even part of that generation.”

    First to guess where this is from gets a “like.”

    1. Wally1


      Jack Kerouac?



    2. CPUWIZ


      First one that sends me $5.00 via PayPal, gets 10 likes.  Normally costs $6.50!

  21. Inside my house it sounded like we were having a wind storm. Outside it’s perfectly calm. :?

    1. CPUWIZ
    2. pacman000


      Not that sort of wind. This went “wooooo” not “Pbbbbbbbbb!”

  22. Annoyance of the day: People who register cool domain names just so they can park & resell them.

    1. CPUWIZ


      That is so 90's, a buddy of mine bought a couple thousand domains and made a frigging killing, he sold more than one domain for $50K each.

    2. thanatos


      My personal record is $4000.

      Friend of mine owned geek.net.  He sold that one for something like 80k.  The buyer was anonymous, then when we discovered it was Slashdot, he probably realized he could have gotten even more.

  23. Did YouTube Mobile remove their pause button?

    1. x=usr(1536)


      Tap the video that's playing and it should either pause or pop up a pause icon which can then be tapped.  Is that not happening?

    2. pacman000


      No; it's not. :( 


      Edit: Now it is. :? Does Google just like to mess with us?

    3. MrMaddog


      Yeah, you have to tap the screen to get the pause icon to appear.  And also you 'have' to drag the red dot on the bottom of the video to fast forward & rewind, no more clicking on a section of the video like on a web browser.  (This is why I prefer using a streaming device or even a browser to watch YouTube)


      Honestly, I think Google just "invents" these useless features to give their code monkeys busy work.


  24. Happy Martin Luther King Day!

  25. It’s snowing!

    1. atari2600land


      I wish it could snow where I was.

    2. x=usr(1536)


      Send some our way!  We're just grey and hovering in the mid-20s.  I'd like a payoff for putting up with it :D
