Saving Geocities

I downloaded the Geocities torrent, but it only gets to 23.7% complete, so, stopping it there, I unzipped whatever zips I could, finding only “geocities.archiveteam.torrent\ARCHIVES\geocities-unmangled\www.geocities.com” to be the only directory with a few sites that could be salvaged.

After that, I processed all the html files, removing absolute links, then uploaded them to my server. It’s only 104 websites, or 340 Mb out of the 1 Tb download, so it’s less than a 3,000th of the size of geocities, but whenever a 100% seed for that torrent comes online, then I can finish the download.

    You’re posting the contents of a torrent file online?

    …Why? It’s a torrent file. Anyone can download it.

    bbot, it’s a 600+ GB torrent. Not anyone can download it.

    Thanks, this brings back memories.

    Hello,

    While I admire and understand your desire to rescue old geocities pages in the wake of their being brought offline in the fall of last year, I would ask that you make an exception for my case. The website “markjenkins66″ that you have saved once belonged to me but is no longer representative of my views or personality, and is frankly just embarrassing! Could you please remove it from your archive? If you do this I will be very grateful – some things are better left to rot!

    Cheers,
    Mark
