Maybe I’m the last to notice, but the Amazing Netscape FishCam appears to be no more. :-( The site is still there, but the last images are dated January 10th this year.
In April 2003, Eric Meyer redesigned the page to use web standards (presumably, it previously looked something like this) but obviously even Eric’s super CSS powers weren’t enough to save it…
Can anyone who works/worked at Netscape tell me what happened to it? Does Netscape/AOL still even own Building 21?
i was just looking at that site yesterday and wondering if it would ever be back.
i think it was one of the first web sites i ever visited.
i once mailed someone still working there and he said he will tell her co-worker to fix it, but it didn’t seem to happen :/ (was back in Mai i think). The last employees seem to work there http://www.perlmeister.com/rundbrief.archiv/20040826/images/s4.jpg someone from formerly-NSCP knows what building this is?
From what I heard, AOL has left the Quad (bld 20-26) and moved to the three story building across the street (bld 13?) shown in http://www.perlmeister.com/rundbrief.archiv/20040826/images/s4.jpg.
The fishcam has been down for ages, and the fish tank is gone (it was leased).
wonder what the world record for longest live feed has ever been…?
The fish task is in the ‘grab and go’ area of
Building 12, and the fish are still being looked after, but the cameras are not hooked up any more.
Maybe we can get someone to post a snapshot every couple of weeks.
I posted some pictures of the fish tank today:
We’ve got a FishCam running at my site
Ocassionally, the PC running the Cam dies and it’s not updated, but otherwise it updates every 15 seconds.
