The Original Funkyberry's original 1997 website back online!
In 1997 I started work on my first website. Hosted on Geocities it was lost and forgotten about when I created my second site in early 2001. The Way Back Archive does have some snapshots of the original site going back to 10th Feb 1999 (Enter http://www.geocities.com/EnchantedForest/Dell/1582/page6.html on archive.org/web/web.php as they don't allow direct linking) but not all the images work and some bits are broken.
Then magically a few months ago Neocities was launched, which attempts to revive the simple fun hosting of the original Geocities (although without the painfully long URL to try and remember). Thankfully I still have a backup of my original website on 3.5" floppy disk, which after I located a USB-3.5" reader I was able to upload! I'm very proud of my original site, and happy to say it was a site of its time and place, featuring such classic 90s website traits as:
- multicoloured letters in Heading,
- buttons drawn using MS Paint,
- an animated envelope icon (on the WayBack snapshot),
- excessive use of the horizontal rule element,
- a link to a Midi page (ahh, life before mp3!),
- and the classic Geocities default hit counter, optimistically set with 4 significant figures!
