One down, many but how to go?

My 60Mb homepage at is a goner. One two go, but how many down? For about 2 years lycos hosted my variable content but static adress, iow, 'blog' spot so far apart from a little foolin about here:
and recently here (posts there are in dutch mostly - NL but not exclusively): (green on blue) (black on blue) (black on darker blue) (green on green)

Those of you curious enough to copy and paste the urls one finds through the archived version of the logbriefer need but copy/paste the first half of just mentioned url before whichever you choose to try and trace.

the still older adress with my first 20Mb worth of extremely colourful and twisted to the point of Krausianesque wording is still up:

A slightly different version of the above (published yesterday on the indymain newswire which I spent a few ((prewar)) years excerpting ((and adding to)), retrievable using 'indymediasamples link via my front page) is here:

and here (too much white that page bwana!): a video of a woman who's ordered to get out of her car and tazered while/cause she remains on the phone with her hubby (she went 4 miles over the speedlimit) instead of promptly obeying; the perfect anecdote to teaze pros and cons out of the woodwork: 64 comments - more reasonable subjects (not many) are far from receiving that kind of attention. --- it's always the wrong kind of idiots (not the savants) that distract from all things needful.

Udpate (june twentyeight):
Like Wired, Lycos depended on revenue from advertising. Content was merely one method of attracting “sticky eyeballs”. Angelfire and Tripod, two other Lycos properties, depended on users to create sites, each with prominent ads, a fraction of which drew enough traffic to support the others. With the acquisition of Wired’s stable of sites—including Wired News, Webmonkey, and Suck—they were not buying the editorial as much as proven audiences to expose to ad banners. “I don’t know why at some point they just didn’t say, ‘Oh, what’s this thing? Get rid of it.’ But they never did, didn’t seem to pay attention to what we were doing, and particularly didn’t pay attention to what we were spending. So I was able to get a lot of people paid good money.” large article by By Matt Sharkey on the first great website that taught the newest in ever worse ways to suck dot com
