Remember Geocities? Yahoo shut down the unofficial home of horrific web design a year ago, but it hasn't gone away entirely. A group calling itself the Archive Team has compiled a massive collection of Geocities pages and plans to release the compendium on BitTorrent. As TechRadar reports, the download is currently being compressed, and it's expected to weigh in at around 900GB.
Although the Archive Team admits that its compilation isn't a complete index of everything Geocities once hosted, the group feels a need to preserve what it can for the sake of history. I'd sooner forget Geocities entirely. However, I'm also curious to see just how many folks hop on the torrent when it goes up. Perhaps, if preserved, this Geocities archive will ensure that the HTML atrocities contained within aren't repeated.
