Geocities is closing down – Back up your files!

Just checking my yahoo email account and was surprised to see that Geocities is closing down on the 26th of October 2009. I must admit that I’m quite upset because 12 years back, it was with geocities that I started my very first website when I was learning HTML. Back then, I didn’t know much about programming and was content with basic webpages with a few pretty images. I had kept my personal website at geocities and have rarely touched it but it was nice to know that it existed.

Anyway, it’s a shame that geocities is closing and there are no tools to quickly download all your files to your computer. I had to go to my geocities website and click on each link to download the webpage. You need to right click on each webpage and choose “Save Page As..” and it will get the webpage with associated images. Thankfully I only had like 15 pages otherwise I would have spent the whole day doing that.
