Blast from the past

Posted by Ken Campbell April 14, 2009 0 Comment 858 views

I’ve often wondered how long an untended website will stick around. If no one visits, if it never gets updated, will it stay online forever anyway, a sort of cyber-time capsule? Is there a purge system of some kind, that flushes away the dead sites, or do they stay on, not really alive but not really gone? The undead of the internet, if you will.

On a whim, I punched in the coordinates for the web site I maintained when I did my trip around Newfoundland, almost 9 years ago. It’s still there, still taking up band width. If you find yourself in need of a diversion, you can see for yourself.
