Today morning, as it happens for all Monday mornings in office, the first thing i checked was XKCD. First i thought the site was hacked and i was too lazy to read the scrolling marquee
“GeoCities is shutting down today. To commemorate this, xkcd.com has been redesigned.”
So as of 26th Oct 2009, Yahoo GeoCities will be closed. So if you have an existing a/c with GeoCities, then you have the option of downloading you files into your system or opt for one of the options given here.
Read more about it here.
This is how the XKCD home page looked like on 26th Oct 2009.
Good bye GeoCities!!
