I stumbed on this gem through following bunch of links that began with a metafilter post. Somehow Geocities style webpages with bouncing icons and difficult to read fonts fill me take me back and manage to feel sort of charming like rotary phones or those 10 inch cell phones from the early nineties. I got the same weird technology nostalgia from re-watching the All Your Base video on youtube the other day. It got me thinking, where can you go on the world wide web to browse really outdated content, like old webpages or UIs that feel like an archaeological expedition?

There is a vintage game called "Cosmos Osmos" for the old Mac OS and would be loaded with several floppy disc's. I have searched all over the web (including mac garden and googleing) and have been unable to find ANYTHING regarding the game. It was surely at least 15 years ago from when I owned the game and was when Mac's owned the computer world. Help find information or even the game.

You all are geeks right? Well, remember those old-school banners that everyone used to print at home for Science Projects and other stuff? You know, where the letter "A" was made up of a bunch of A's to form the letter?
Where in this day and age would I get something like that done? Anyone have Print Shop Deluxe 1.0 and an old printer? Would I try some local schools??
My band's CD Release party is coming up and the whole theme of the packaging and everything is "old computer stuff".
Thanks! This place rules...
