It used to be that you discovered new webpages by clicking on links in webpages you liked. When I first started reviving this website, the idea felt a little antiquated. But then I started putting in the effort to rediscover the small web and it was kind of tough going at first. But once I had a foothold, I found links sections were still a thing and actually incredibly helpful.
So here's me doing my part. More to come!

I want to make it very clear that this is not a pro-QAnon podcast. It is a funny and depressing podcast that keeps tabs on QAnon and QAnon-adjacent conspiracy theories. Or, as Wikipedia puts it, "QAnon Anonymous (QAA) is an investigative journalism podcast that analyzes and debunks conspiracy theories." I think it's important to be aware of how scary and pervasive some of this is so we can recognize it.
20 Year Club
The links below are links from any of my old webpages prior to 2001 that are still alive as of 2021. Corporate pages don't count. The percentage of links that survived is well under 10% (I haven't done the exact math). So kudos to these survivors.
