Yeah, I do browse Newgrounds sometimes. Super Mario Bros. Z ;-;

And I can't believe this website is still up after all these years

Wait, I thought that was recent... I guess it makes sense, the overall look has a 9x look to it.

All of my childhood sites are still up and going strong, including this one. The internet hasn't changed for me, just got larger.


Good heavens even MySpace is still up!

Yes! That page is a beautiful mess!

Some of my favourite old Halloween pages are still up, which people made in the 90's, rarely updated, and still keep online:

http://softlyspokenmagicspells.com/halloween/

That same guy also has a little DOOM page hosting his WAD, which if isn't nostalgic I don't know what is:
http://softlyspokenmagicspells.com/doom.html

I miss old webpages. They were so flashy and cool.
Now everyone is just trying to be all "sleek" and "minimalist", and
no one uses cute little clipart anymore. :(

Oh, I forgot this!

It has way more charm than that bland idgames/archive.

edit: I've been looking for that diglett site myself. Looks like it's by some guy who goes by cheezburger? But every time I try a link, the page never loads :'(

Aww man, it doesn't have a date at the bottom.

I like going to old webpages that say (C) 1997 or whatever at the bottom, because it brings me back to my Captain_Legoman days on AOL.

I wouldn't touch Myspace with a ten foot pole now though. And that's the social media site I started with.

Ah I remember Newgrounds. Lord I look back on about half the stuff I watched on there and wondered how I ever found most of that stuff funny. Still, has some good content though...

Yeah, I hate the way they're doing it now. At the time Facebook started gaining momentum they should've pushed towards giving people a makeshift website to promote their music or comedy. Now they stripped it down and even shut down the forums, which destroyed any way to market your page.
