Aging resources

Posted by: | March 23, 2009 | Comments Off on Aging resources

It’s always disappointing and a bit sad to go to a resource and find out it’s a legacy site … either forgotten or very infrequently updated.

WhaleNet looks like it was designed in 1995. It still has a “works best in Navigator” link, which of course takes you to the site of a company which has long since abandoned all browser development efforts.

Even worse is to find a resource that is being somewhat updated, but the home page is not keeping up. WhaleNet has been updated as recently as December 2008 … at least on this page. This page is presumably “new,” but the resources on it are 3,4 and even 10 years old.

The overall look and feel and content of the site is that this is a ghost town.
