The Internet’s I.Q. Just Increased

Good news everybody Yahoo is finally doing something to help improve the Internet. News was brought to my attention that GeoCities is being shutdown. To this end Yahoo also release the most useful help file on their site.

I’m sure most of you know of GeoCities. Although there were sometimes little nuggets of great information somebody pounded together in 5 minutes you had to hope the site wasn’t over the 3kb (at least that’s what it seemed like) limit imposed by Yahoo. Likewise you had to hop there weren’t so many adds injected into the site by Yahoo that it would make your browser take a big dump (remember we didn’t always have those super fast JavaScript engines).

Well good riddance. I only wish I could do a Spartan kick in GeoCities’s chest to send them down an apparently never ending void.
