6-30-22 Bible Verse of the Day: Zechariah 14:9
SpeedRacer.com, in 1996 The official website for the anime. There's a cool, but mall "30th nniversiary" logo in th upper left-hand corner. Here's what the site looked like in 2002. The wayback machine's archive is spotty after that; looks like they improved things a lot, but all I can get is the first page in 2005. Here's a later version, from 2011. Looks like the domain was taken over by another service sometime after that, then was shut down entirely after 2014.

6-28-22 Old-Site of the Day: J-Slice's DBAF Planet A small Dragon Ball Z fan site, with several photo galleries. Probably online since at least 2001, but the oldest archived version's not there; it was blocked by a robots.txt file. Looks like the earlies archived version's from 2002. The background reminds me of one or Geocities backgrounds; I wonder if this site was transfered from there...

Search Service of the Day: FrogFind It's been awhile since I've posted a search service of the day. This is uses DuckDuckGo's index. While I prefer services with their own index, this one is still unique enough to link to; it creates stripped-down versions of sites, so old computers can still use the web.
Emulators & compatibility layers for old software Not an old site, from what I can tell, but still useful. Offers links to projects meant to emulate old DOS & Windows environments.
CopyrightData.com This long, long, long page provides reference material for U.S. copyright lengths. Since 2007, going by the copyright. This site has a few other pages, but it doesn't seem to have an index; all/most of the links are in the article text. Joy. Oh, wait. Here's a site map.
