GeoCities: The World Wide Web Is Under Construction Again

Get ready to transport yourself back to a time when people used shiny plastic discs to listen to music — when connecting to the internet required a series of obnoxious squealing tones — and when it seemed everybody had an “under construction” web page on GeoCities.
