Return of the Cybrary

Filed under: blog — tsladmin @ 10:01 pm

It’s blast from the past day for me. During various server moves, somewhere along the way we lost my first site, Jenny’s Cybrary to the Stars, which I ran from 1995-1999. The main highlight of the site was The Librarians’ Site du Jour, the original library blog.

So when a reader alerted me that the site was missing, I had to start looking through backups to find the original files. Because I hadn’t worked with the files in a decade, they weren’t on any of my recent backup drives. I started to worry that I wouldn’t be able to recover them but in the end, I found them on my old Zip drive. Yep, that’s right – remember Zip drives? Backup 1.0 FTW!

Zip drive FTW!

Some fun pages from the Cybrary:

Sorry in advance for the yellow background – it was the early days. :-p

  1. Oh what a trip down memory lane. I remember your early sites so clearly and how often I recommended them to people. And brings to mind even earlier things like this list of “top ten list for internet novices” http://serials.infomotions.com/nnews/nnews-13.txt

  4. Hey, a lot of your RSS feeds also seem to be down at the moment.
    I’m only getting the comments feeds and the blog posts only feed.
