Hi wldspirit!
That was my favorite name site also.
This may work, from the wayback machine

http://web.archive.org/web/200711100041 ... ename.html

I'm not sure how many pages it is if anyone wanted to print it out.

Thanks Vj, I copied and pasted it to my documents, that is the original list from the first site..... :D

Haven't had a chance to read thru the other one I found, actually a compilation of three different sources, but I bookmarked it as well.

Wonder how many other dead links I have bookmarked!! :lol:

I think all geocites sites have been terminated as of October..I read this a while back but I don't remember where.The owners were given almost a year to transfer their info over to a new server.

This is why the information is available on the way back machine. I believe AOL and MSN also terminated sites over the last year or so - free sites and even googlepages is moving to a new "look" . Anyone who uses a free service should follow up to make sure their information is safe because once canceled, all information is lost - unless you find it on the wayback machine.

I had some very helpful Geo websites :(

The wayback machine helps though.
