Prodigy.net bites the dust.

On June 1,2011 AT&T / Yahoo will kill all Prodigy.net sites. We're trying to save as much of these as we can, a la Geocities. There's a lot of historically significant material on here.

Domains Affected

TODO: Add more here... Not all of these are confirmed.

  • pages.prodigy.net
  • pages.att.net
  • pages.sbcglobal.net

  • pages.flash.net
  • pages.nvbell.net
  • pacbell.net
  • pages.swbell.net
  • pages.wans.net
  • pages.attworld.com

Specs

  • Usernames are not case sensitive. They can have alphanumeric sequences, periods, underscores, and hyphens.
  • There doesn't appear to be any ratelimiting, at least from what I (underscor) have done.
