    When you were younger - did you do a website...

    ...and is it still there?

    I was hyperlinking around T'internet and found a members "stylish" personal website - had a bit of a laugh and then remembered that my old one might still be in existance - and it is

    http://www.geocities.com/siwalters_uk

    for an example of prime handcoded/Word saved in HTML website
    (But at least my daughters had an excuse - they were only 10!)

    Anyone else got something to show? (It must be bad - your old myspace page for instance )

    Well I have to say that I still have mine!
    In fact its in the process of a re vamp.
    I never did the 'showing off my skills' thing with music etc.
    No mine was boring. In fact my website until recently looked like something forgottenabout for a reason.
    I had loads of stuff on the site that had no links to it. But Iknew it was there. So I kept alsorts of info and data sheets and programs. That way where ever I was I could get to my utils and info.
    Now I use Wordpress and yes I have a blog.
    But I also host some commercial sites and hobby sites. With some forums. They are all good practice for me and keep my hand in on these things.
    Quake? God my fav game. We used to hold tornaments in our house over the summer with all the kids in the area comming in for death matches. Still have a quake server running (somewhere!) Think its at the side of the netware 3.12 server lol

    I did a South Park fansite while I was at school - around 98, I can't remember the url though and I'm pretty sure it was on one of the many freehosts that have since dissapeared and taken the horrors they hosted down with them lol

    I almost got suspended over that... the head of year didn't see the funny side

    I don't think mine is up any more, and I wouldn't be able to remember the address anyway, lol.

    Had a Command and Conquer site on Angelfire as my first site. That was fun.

    Don't think there are any websites around that are that old but if you google me (eg: uk education schools it newsgroup steve rochford - Google Search) then you'll find some of the high quality info I used to post on usenet :-)

    Actually, Default.asp is still live and at least some of that dates back to 2000 so I suppose that makes it quite old!

    I use to have my own charity / challenge website back in 2002 (in the days when JustGiving were just starting out) detailing my progress of various challenges I was participating in at the time.

    It's not online anymore.

    I also managed a website for my mate's car dealership around the same time.

    You could always look for your old websites at:

    Hey Steve,

    The website's template may be Cr@p but the video is great.

    I missed our group's Farnes trip last October, but hopefully looking to go sometime this year.
