Finding a Dead Geocities Site
December 5, 2011 7:15 AM   Subscribe

Help me find my old Geocities (probably) site.

At some point in the late 90s, I thought it would be hilarious to make a Dead Ewok Homepage on one of the free website hosts that were around then. Now one of my friends has challenged my teenage Ewok-hating cred so I'd like to find the site to show him, even though it was pretty much just a couple of pictures of that Ewok that gets shot in Return of the Jedi rolling around and dying with all the stylistic flair that a 13 year old who didn't understand HTML could muster.

The problem is that I can't remember which host I used and I'm also not really sure what username I was using back then, so I can't just use the Wayback Machine like I'd planned. I also checked through what must have been the e-mail account I had back then and can't find any login information there. Is this just a lost cause?

If it isn't in the wayback machine, it very well might be a lost cause.

Have you tried a google search with setting timelines and verbatim keywords that you may recall?

reocities.com has resurrected some former geocities sites and that was the first result that looked possible from a google search of "reocities ewok dead", but it doesn't have any pictures.

I just gave that a shot and it didn't turn up much aside from some Ewoks aTe mY bAlLZ pages, which was fun in its own way.

Nope, which is a real shame for me because I'm sure that my version of that wasn't nearly as good.
