3/13/20 - A Minor-er Update

Kind of

No new pages this time, just tweaking some old ones. There was a suggestion in the Guestbook forever ago to add a viewport meta tag to my site, and I'm finally getting around to it. Something about making the site more mobile friendly. On that note, I've changed the captions for the images I use in the exhibits so that instead of being hover text, they're just below the images. A little less fun, but more readable, especially for phones. If you didn't even notice that the images had captions, that just means you need to go back and read all of the exhibits again. Good thing there's only four!

Speaking of the exibits, I was way off on the timing of the big Neopets update. Summer 2019 came and went (along with 2019), and Neopets.com is still the same. There were apparently some demos of the site shown at Comic-Con that year that looked promising, but that's all. Hopefully we'll see something this year, since Flash is being killed off at the end of it. Either way, it's comforting to know I'm not the only person bad at keeping their site updated.

The only page that got a little more attention this time was the Lemmy's Land article. One of the links finally died, so I had to put up a Wayback Machine version. When I started this site, I wanted to focus on websites from the past that were still up today, but I think that's going to be harder and harder. That said, if I'm going to start exhibits about archived sites, I want them to be sites that are mostly intact in their archived forms, and Lemmy's Land definitely fits the bill there. I don't know if I will eventually need to replace all the links in that exhibit with Wayback Machine versions, but that's a task for another time.

Added to the site:

  • Some tags you probably won't even notice!

6/21/19 - A Minor Update

Sort of

Three years in and we finally get a Minor Exhibit to the site, talking about the various Flash content on Neopets and the hurdles I see in what The Neopets Team will need to do in order to get things ready for their 'mobile overhaul'. I could have expanded things a bit more for other ancient parts of the site that had fallen off the wayside like NeoQuest, but I wanted to strictly focus on Flash content. This article may or may not get an addendum later depending on how the overhaul goes.

Besides the article, it was brought to my attention that some of the sites I was linking to had died, so I figured this was as good an opportunity as any to do an overhaul of my own and update the links page with a few more pages, while replacing the dead links with Wayback Machine versions.

Added to the site:

  • Neopets Flash Content added as a Minor Exhibit under Museum.
  • Added some Links and tweaked some others.

11/24/18 - Well This is Awkward


So I guess it's been almost two years! That totally wasn't intentional. I won't bore you with the details, but the two big roadblocks were me moving to a new home, and then realizing that the original article I was planning for the next update was horrible and having to start all over. But that's all in the past now. I do still have that minor exhibit idea kicking around in my head; hopefully that one won't take two years to finish.

Added to the site:

  • Otaku World added as a Major Exhibit under Museum.

01/23/17 - Getting the Obvious Out of the Way

Featuring the Quad City DJs

When I started on this site, I had a few ideas for museum articles; this update features the Space Jam website, one of the more obvious ones. The next update won't be on a site that everyone already talks about when they talk about old websites, I promise; off the top of my head I have one major and one minor exhibit. At my current rate of updating, that should keep me busy for a while.

Added to the site:

  • Space Jam added as a Major Exhibit under Museum.
  • Added another Link.

12/11/16 - helscome to my wedsite

It's not done.

Excalipoor is now open for business! I've been wanting to make a site for the longest time, but I didn't want to put anything up until I had some actual material for the site. I don't have EVERYTHING ready, but I think there's enough to get things started. Just pay no attention to that mysterious header link up there.

Added to the site:

  • The site itself!
  • Lemmy Land added as a Major Exhibit under Museum.
  • The Nethack Reading List added under Misc.
  • Guestbook open.
  • Added some Links.
