Bible Verse of the Day: Romans 6:4
Old-Site of the Day: StreamLineFilms.com Distributes stockfootage, including clips from Planet of [the] Dinosaurs. Inspired the name of Streamline Pictures, Carl Macek's old anime distribution company. Their website first appears in the Wayback Machine in 2000, but wasn't really ready till 2003. Nice old layout, which hasn't changed much.

1-24-19 Bible Verse of the Day: Romans 6:15-21 Some have said Paul & James contradict each other on Faith & Works, but I don't see it. It's just algebra; if A=B then B must equal A. James says you must have works to show you have faith; Paul says if you have Faith you'll have works.
Old-Site of the Day: The B-Hive, in 2001 While browsing Badmovies.org's forum, I found a link to this site. It's gone offline, like many small sites, but is saved in the Wayback Machine. While it looks like the Internet Archive only got a few captures, there is enough to explore, so have fun!

Absoulte Playstation, In 1997 While looking for Croc: Legend of the Gobbos-related sites, I stubled onto GameRankings, which listed this site as a reviewer. The site's gone, but the archive could be fun to browse.

1-22-19 Bible Verse of the Day: Matthey 7:7-8
Old-Site of the Day: InkSpot.com, in 1997 While exploring the archived version of yesterday's old-site, I came across an article noting that Inkspot, another major writing site, was closing. They'd been bought by a media company which was beginning to feel the FX of the Dot Com Bubble. Too bad; it looks like a lovely site, with a layout which gholds up today. This is the earliest working archive I can find; I believe it went off line around 2001. (Don't quote me on that; it could've been earlier.) The domain name still exists, but it's just a place holder with a link to another writing site. Such is the way of the web...

And what about the Old-Site of the Day? How about Y2KInfo.com, in 1999. "Could that technological dynamo of the nineties get whacked by Y2K?" "How can industry trade groups pronounce telecommunications companies and gas and electric utilities compliant when financial analysts say otherwise?" "What is Y2K?" I dunno, but my Tandy thinks it's 1918. ;) Have a happy New Year folks, and I wish peace & prosperity to you in the comming months. 303;94
