This is really good to hear! I remember the magic of exploring the internet, the animations, the games, the websites structured as a Haunted House whose navigation was deliberately a maze.

Now all I need is for people to care about role playing games on servers (MU*s). They still exist and I still play them. Message board or chat room just isn't the same as having an actual structure of rooms, special commands, and permanent objects.

Very cool.
I think a lot of things are going to be lost when flash goes away.
There are so many old games and short animations that rely on flash and so many pieces of neatness.
It's not all Newgrounds either.
You occasionally come across some interesting website that emulate "what used to be" and feel a smile cross your lips. it's corny sometimes but fun.
I seem to remember a few that were designed like windows 1 and 3.1 desktops.
Also love the Garbo PC archive.

I was wondering if Pulp Phantom still existed, and yes, it does.
