Submission + - Geocities is No More (

Tuxedo Jack writes: After fifteen years of hosting sites, Geocities, a popular free web host, is shutting down its services today. Users may remember this site as being one of, if not the, largest webhosts during the late 1990s and early 2000s, and many will, no doubt, have had sites there at one time or another. Yahoo, owner of the service since 1999, is recommending that all users migrate to their paid hosting, though they are linking to free hosts for people who do not wish to pay. Goodbye, Geocities; though we'll miss the funeral, XKCD is holding its own memorial service.
