Geocities is closing down on the 26 October 2009, and they're going to just delete everything on it. So if anyone has a site there, be sure to save a copy on your local hard drive.

I think these parts of fandom history are worth saving! There are several ways to keep the content on the web:

I'm so grateful for the offer to move my stuff. Will you tell me, please, what info is needed from me for you to do it? I'm Mrs-Nice-But-Dim when it comes to stuff like this. Ru xxxx

OK, so, I got a note from them, and copied your LJ email. The OTW/AooO people will reply with a beta account and we'll go from there.

There are a lot of old Dom sites that had incarnations on Geocities. See?

Search Google for site:www.geocities.com dominic monaghan

They were invaluable in finding older material or in finding other sites with older material. I guess I'll have to try to save them for myself so I have a record, particularly of sites like Making Merry.

*flails*

Are there good whole site archiving programs for Mac?
