Old-Site of the Day: The Website of Speed and Time, in 1998 A fan site for Mike Jittlov, independent animator & star of The Wizard of Speed & Time. You should watch that movie; Mike gave someone permission to put it online for free. I found this site while looking through Google Groups, there's an old Usenet group for Jittlov. Still fairly active looking, tho he hasn't done much since the early 90's. 581;118

Old-Site of the Day: RinaudosReproductions.com This site's barely been touched by the WayBack Machine, but it's in there. Here it is in 2003. Earlier archived versions don't work well enough to post.

Also has a page on Photoplayers, big machines which made music for silent movies. They're kinda noisey. 470;150

Old-Site of the Day: Filmack.com Filmack is a family-owned company which has made movie trailers since 1919. They made that old "Let's All Go To the Lobby" short. Theire website's remained virtualluy unchanged since 2001. Still in business, but just barely. Digital films don't wear out, so no one needs to buy new prints. Besides that, there's a lot of new competition. The owner moved the business from a store front to his basement, & cut back on staff. His kids aren't interested in the studio, so it'll probably close when he retires. :( 356;104

Old-Site of the Day: Retrobase.net "At Retrobase.net you will find all the information about the classic video games and retro consoles. Here you will be able to check all the important game details including screenshots, banners, release dates, platforms, developers, game genres and overviews." Online since 2000, according to the copyright. Earliest archive I can find is from 2002. Probably last updated in 2016. I miss game sites like this; simple things made by one or two people in their spare time, but with a ton of info. And fast; most indipendent sites today are on some sort of bloated blogging platform. Sadly, it looks like this site has some sort of problem which keeps me from looking at their lists of games, & it looks like the Internet Archive didn't crawl deeply enough to save the game pages either. Even Google doesn't seem to have links to the deeper pages saved. :( 521;128

5-20-18 Curlie.org, the DMOZ successor project, is now accepting new editor applications. DMOZ was a (nearly) 20 year old web directory organized by volunteers. It broke web pages into a series of categories users could browse through. It lost its home & domain name when AOL decided to stop supporting the project in 2017. Here's my article from when it closed.

Old-Site of the Day: GameGenie.com A cheat code website opperating since 1996! The earliest archive I can find is from 1998...but it's a wedding site. ?_? The domain must've changed hands. By 2000 the video game site had taken over the domain. Looks like they used to offer news & reviews too. Has nothing to do with the Galoob game enhancement toy, from what I can tell. 370;95

8-8-18 Old-Site of the Day: Watermarks Technical Creations page Just found this today. It has collections of code, some of which are in the public domain. Here's an overview of 3D graphics, in Pascal. Here's a simple Public Domain 3D engine, in QBasic. Here's a texture mapping demo, also in QBasic. I'll let you explore; there's a lot of info there, & the layout's not too bad; it's a fairly visually appealling site, especially for 1997.
This is completely off topic, but I want to save this link, so... How much do dogs eat, in pounds? (It says 2-4 percent of their body weight per day.)
