Bogozone is hosted on one of those free website hosts, so it tends to... go down. A lot.

A lot.

(+) Where does “neoclassical” website design fall into this? Like, Original Flavor Mostly-Semantic HTML, with more modern CSS styles on a micro scale but still very document-oriented and out-of-the-way, without the huge amount of whitespace / “very design-y” stuff, limited use of JavaScript in progressive enhancement style.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, can you link one of these types of sites?

I was reminded of a couple of places I used to go on for humor a long time ago, and I'm surprised that some of them are still up.

Sidetalking, (the site making fun of the Nokia N-Gage) is still up in its 2004-2005 incarnation, with one update about the device's discontinuation.

CrapMAME is a site showcasing awful MAME cabinets. It's been mirrored in several places, but this appears to be the original host.

RinkWorks is an online entertainment site that I found through the Computer Stupidities page. The entire site's design and much of the content is straight out of the late 90s/early 2000s.

Almost all the sites hosted by or linked to in Konfiskated Technologies fall under this. It's a shame HG101 updated their layout, but I guess they have their reasons.

This page on Spriteclad has a lot of links to sites like these, some of which were already mentioned here.

I remember logging onto to this old website where I used to go gaming and played stuff like Red Earth and Red Earth 2 and Hexagon and N-Blox. I dunno what happened to it now but I guess it probably died. Bonus points if it’s still there. I don’t remember what it was called but it had a white background. Brings back memories.

I remember using AOL as well. I think I used it as my gateway into games like Bejeweled, Skillgammon, Heavy Weapon and this shmup game where I played as a helicopter. Good times.

Realtek's website hasn't had a resurface since before FF came out, if it's worth mentioning.

My recent 3D model stuff made me revisit a classic site, and one of my big inspirations. I didn't see it mentioned already, so here's a link to it.

I'm of course referring to Neglected Mario Character Comix.

I was digging deep into some PC-88 music disk stuff, and found that the ACTIVE GAMERS website still seems to be around. It also still seems to be maintained and updated.

Oh my god, is that really the etymology? Is it called Hotmail because it had a HTML client? My mind is blown.

Same. I thought it was that they were just capitalizing consonants and lowercasing vowels, like in MeGaLoVaNia. MGLVN. The results pointed me towards the "4chan archive" @ boards.fireden.net
The website has apparently hopped to and fro in past years.

3DTuning.com has apparently been up since 1998, and has never ceased to update. Right now it is rather impressive, but still needs dozens of updates. There was a time when they released 5 models a week, doing very little to them. Now it's more like 2 or 3 models once or twice a month, and at least 1 has a huge layout of options. There was a phase when they were going to update a bunch of past models, and then they instead just kept adding new ones. Now there's this division between vehicles and truck(s), and a car voting system is also in place. Just recently, they added an ad-blocker detector. There is also an update for adblock plus, which removes the ability to only block certain ads (instead its all ads or only ones that block the page). I used this tool to block the squid that captures turf before it's cool.
