Unearthing the past.

I never thought I’d see this again.

My legendary lost fansite!

Not after I gave it to a fellow webmaster when I finally realized I had limits when it came to running fansites, and had to choose which ones I wanted to run the most. I gave it to a fellow Metal Slug fansite webmaster who proceeded to do absolutely jack shit with it, and once his site went the way of the dodo, so did mine. I didn’t have it backed up at all, so I resigned myself to the fact that it had been lost to the ages.

Not once did I think to check the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. That was a major oversight on my part.

While prepping an upcoming West Mansion update, I got to thinking about the old site, and decided to check and see if there were any remnants of it kicking around. Sure enough, there was. A lot of it has been lost to time – mainly images – but the entire website had been preserved. That surprised me, considering that the site hadn’t been up that long before I turned it over to the other guy.

So I grabbed everything I could, did some quick and fast HTML editing, a couple of minor updates, and uploaded the site to a subdirectory of West Mansion.
