Here are some cool websites I like and would like to expose other people to.
I sadly found out as I made this list that DreamHost nuked a butt ton of inactive sites that I liked, so this will be a shorter list than expected I guess. <-- I was wrong about that, apparently some old sites just refuse to load if you use HTTPS instead of HTTP.
- Mod Archive
- A lot of modules.
- :: modules.pl ::
- Home of ModFM, a radio stream that plays modules.
- Winamp Skin Museum
- A lot of Winamp skins.
- My favorite active (as of originally adding this) Myspace bootleg on the internet.
- Cool forum for people who run personal websites, particularly minimalist / old fashioned sites such as this. As long as I ignore the fact that I haven't logged into here since forever ago, I'd say the site is cool.
- The very best website on ALL of the internets. My website SUCKS, go to this one instead NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
- Blogging site that was popular when blogging was popular. This site is honestly better as a time capsule than a service worth using nowadays, but who knows, maybe people will resurrect it like Newgrounds. There are still blogs from 10+ years ago that are fun to read, and there currently aren't any upcoming anti-consumer updates that look like they'll clean the slate, so things are good here.
- Scrapyard of Windows XP era desktop ricing. I'm sure that nothing hosted on this site could run on modern software, but I've had an easy enough time adjusting what I like from this site to my own setup.
- An absurdly good looking Japanese site about software and design, I think. It also hasn't been updated in forever.
- WINDOWS 93
- Windows 93's arch nemesis.
- A cool personal site dedicated to old compy stuff that can be browsed on any device with an internet connection. If only more sites could have even half of the compatibility this site has.
- Nathan's Toasty Technology Page
- Personal site with homemade Doom WADs on it, a pro-Mozilla section, an incredible anti-IE section, and a huge collection of OS GUI reviews.
- Web Bloat Score Calculator
- A useful utility for determining whether or not webpages are bloated.
- Accursed Farms
- My favorite YouTuber aside from DNSL.
- Grand Theft Auto Flash Websites
- Fanmade remakes of Rockstar's GTA Flash sites.
- The personal (and presumably abandoned) website of Xaser Acheron. It's comfy and loaded with cool Doom stuff. I also liked the layout enough to copy it because I'm lazy.
- Flying Omelette
- Video game and TV reviews by at least two different guys. I mostly only visit to see The Random Hoo Haas Hub, which has METAL SLUG: MISSING IN ACTION on it. That section is dedicated to documenting as much unused / scrapped content in the Metal Slug series as possible, and is the reason why Glen Achilles has a name. There's also a cool ass Red Dwarf section, which is how I found out there was a Japanese community for Red Dwarf.
- ♥HARMONY ZONE♥
- Website of the guy who made Goblet Grotto and some other stuff. I happen to like Crime Zone too, but didn't feel like saying that one since people mainly only know of Goblet Grotto. If you think that red rooms on the dank web are a real thing then you may also be familiar with Schnell Online.
- The VG Resource
- Forum / gallery dedicated to ripping assets from games and game related products. Always remember to giv credit & donut steel.
Miscellaneous (I can't believe I spelled that right without Googling it)
- Holotypic Occlupanic Research Group
- Everything you could possibly ever need to know about occlupanids.
- Bento & Starchky
- Home of the offical Francis E. Dec fanclub and two web comics. Every documented Dec rant is hosted aside from Hangman Rope Sneak Deadly Gangsterism.
- Brendan Fraser's official website, which hasn't been updated in forever.
- 2023-04-28 UPDATE: the site looks like it got updated a month ago to include a YouTube embed of his 2023 Oscars acceptance speech. That feels really weird to say but I'm happy for him.
- The truth about John Lennon's murder. By Steve Lightfoot - Home Lennon Murder Truth
- Website that suggests Stephen King and Ronald Reagan were the ones behind the assassination of John Lennon.
