- draft with uncompleted content -
Content in Internet is fast growing but unfortunatley also a fast dying thing. So I think it is important to rescue some info before that the time destroy any proof of that times.
|A time for personal pages|
Most of readers were also writers, same it is still happening with paper fanzines.
A new type of content, far away from the main stream channels, was spreading very fast in the network. There were plenty of webpages full of info about hacking, phreaking, virus, free
software, cracking, tv decode, cd recording, electronics, programming, etc...
There was some free webpage providers such as: geocities, terra.es, fortunecity, personales.com
Some interesting webpages of that moment of time (this list is mainly focused in Spain)
- Astalavista.box.sk. Serials for games and software. Curious the similar name to the probably biggest internet search engine called Altavista (in that times)
- Isla tortuga. an article with more info about this web portal
- Viva el jamon y el vino. cracks and hosted in isla tortuga
|Under (just an page of a IRC channel)|
And the game stations come with a recordable storage...
It open the door, to burning software, modification chips and many accessories to enable a personal game station to play no-paid content. (Most times commercial but few times created by community)
Most pages and information disappeared time ago, but there are still few communities which born and grow in that time, such as Elotrolado
apps for small devices (PDA and first smartphones)
small java apps, for Nokias and many other phones brands,
Palm, touch screen apps for PalmOS (PDA and business phones)
Symbian, apps for keyboard devices, and how Nokia got the train to touchscreen too late
winCE, (touchscreen PDAs and latter phones also)
Most pages are closed but C4PDA is still alive and all the information for PalmOS
