The original 1996 index file is still there.
What blew my mind just now is that the webring link still works, sort of. Apparently Webring had a chain of custody until today and is still active.
I stumbled across the original TIF file for FluffMUCK’s web page art, by the late Gene Catlow, and upgraded the image on the site to high resolution.
Because you know, it’s not 1997 anymore and a 224KB PNG file is no big deal.
Yeah, I think I’ll be staying in Florida thank you.
Unbelievable footage from the pileup on I-70 today. My jaw dropped to the floor first time I saw this video.
So yeah the artist of this is BoingDragon (http://boingdragon.com/).
It took some Usenet sleuthing, but credit has been given! Yaaaaaayy. https://twitter.com/zorinlynx/status/1096453647070912513
I'm surprised to see that "Only web colors" is still a thing.
Does anyone still use 8-bit indexed color displays?
RADOM DIGITAL ART TIP: If you use Photoshop and prefer working in RGB, but turn in finals in CMYK, try hitting control+shift+y while you have the color picker open! It'll gray out any area of the spectrum that won't print in CMYK so you don't accidentally use those colors!
My first hard drive was 170MB, in my first x86 PC in 1993.
My previous computer was an Apple IIe with 140K floppy disks. 170MB felt like all the space in the world.
Filled it up in less than a year of course. :)
My first hard drive was 650MB.
How big was your first hard drive? 😉
@zorinlynx if you save a large file and your voice goes up an octave, you know it’s time to back up
Geeky silly South Florida lynx. UNIX cat. Cyclist. A little weird sometimes. Yes, I'm the FluffMUCK Zorin :)
