404 Page Found As started in May 2009 with the goal of uncovering dated websites (generally from 1994-2001) that are still active and have avoided major updates. Many people think that sites created in the years following the dot-com bubble burst (2001-2003) are old. This may be true, but the differences between a site from 2001 and 1996 are quite striking. It's overwhelming how much data from the days of Usenet, Gopher, and FTPs still exists in the depths of the Internet.

JenniCam (1996 - 2003) JenniCam was the first web-based "lifecaster". Jennifer Kaye Ringley would set up a number of cameras in her house that would take photos of her, and would be then sent to the Web where anyone could view them.

Example of how it looked like at the time (guest version): https://web.archive.org/web/19991013041704/http://jennicam.org:80/guests/liveupdating.html, https://web.archive.org/web/20000229164406/http://jennicam.org:80/guests/liveupdating.html

Around 1998, Howard A. Landman would write a number of poems dedicated to Jennifer Ringley, his site is still up as of writing, but was last updated on the 3rd of September 2003: http://www.polyamory.org/~howard/Jenni/

State of Georgia Vs. Mr. Allen Transcript (2016) Amazing transcript of a real court case of Mr Allen, a murder defendant, who kept on shouting obscenities at the judge and then threatened to kill members of the judge's family. Very much of a long read, but well, well worth it.

List of music considered the worst Wikipedia page of music considered the worst. This page has a number of amazedly harsh comments, such as this quote talking about Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice; A Houston Press critic named it as the worst song ever to emanate from the state of Texas, and said that it "set back the cause of white people in hip-hop a decade".

Damn.

The page also talks about a bootleg album called "Elvis' Greatest Shit" (charming), an album that is an "album consisting largely of outtakes and a selection of Elvis' movie soundtrack songs of the 1960s, which was deliberately made to highlight the worst of his career". The album is so classy, the album cover even has a real photo of Elvis in an open casket, like fuck.

NHS Blood Quiz I found a page on the old blood.co.uk website via archive.org on who can and cannot give blood, this quiz, that the last part of it seems to not load due to Flash, has the question "Are you a man who has had oral or anal sex with another man (even if you used a condom)?". As late 2014, there were changes that allowed gay and bisexual men to donate their blood if they had sex within the past three months. To quote the NHS website; "Using protection like a condom can reduce this risk, but it doesn't eliminate it. [...] That is why we can't collect blood from men who have had oral or anal sex with men, with or without protection, in the last 3 months. This isn't meant to be discriminatory. It's not based on anyone's sexual history or sexuality. It reflects statistical risks for the sexual behaviour that increases the risk of virus transmission."
