Please, be sure to watch this right to the end. The soundtrack he’s playing while he psyches himself up is just exquisite!
Not one but two announcements that remind me how long I’ve been playing round with this internet thing and how times have changed:
And Baio confirms that this time it looks as if Suck.com’s content has finally been ousted from the domain where it lived when it was, truly, the best damn ‘zine on the internet.
According to The Register, Demon Internet (one of the early Internet Service Providers in the UK) is finally being closed down.
I left Demon Internet years ago once it became clear that their new owners were much more interested in selling comprehensive telecoms packages that running an ISP, and last time Suck was being updated I was reading the site using Windows 95. but never mind: both the ‘zine and the ISP helped to show me what the internet was good for. It’s sad to to see them both disappear from the internet.
