I think it's because Berkeley's computer science undergrad association is located in Soda Hall (where all the other CS stuff is).

I run a sort of link directory where I post a bunch of sites I find interesting on occasion. A friend pointed me in the direction of this thread, but I actually listed this imageboard there a long time ago.

If anyone's interested in checking it out, you can visit it here: https://peelopaalu.neocities.org/

I hate to be posting twice, but is Postbox Garden down for good? I noticed they went down, but hoped it was temporary... Does anyone know anything?

Nobody ever sent anything to it. Hosting costs at least some money and comfy isn't a currency...

Scream was great. I wish I had headphones to figure out what Life is Worth Living guy is saying.
586 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-03 00:08
>>585
Well, it received like 5-6 postcards over a course of two years, so it definitely wasn't very "profitable" (even given the low hosting price of today), especially considering the .garden TLD.
I wish they left a parting note instead of disappearing without a word, though. Some closure, if you may.

Scream was great.
The best part about it was its authenticity.

Thanks Anon, glad you like it.
>>584
Yes, I am pretty sure that Postbox Garden is gone for good. I tried reaching out to find the owner, but I can't get in touch with them.
>>585
Hosting costs at least some money and comfy isn't a currency.
This. The .garden TLD was also a huge mistake as >>586 pointed out - Those domains cost around $30 a year which is ridiculous.

I've owned sites in the past that have been fun and comfy in theory, but when they get 1 - 2 users once in a blue moon it just isn't worth the cost of keeping them around a lot of the time. I actually wrote a news post about this on Peelopaalu when Postbox Garden first went down. It's kind of funny that the only site I've ever made that a couple of people have wanted to donate a couple of dollars to me for is Peelopaalu, which costs me nothing but time to run.
588 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-03 21:47

Well, we have their address. Then again, it was... Cambridge Garnening Club, or something like that. It could theoretically be possible... to send them a postcard.
I suppose it won't do if it was a club connected to some university, though. Might be that someone who's ran this project just graduated. That's just me assuming things based on "Cambridge", though.

In any case, it's ridiculously easy to host things on the Internet nowadays for next to no money. There's Neocities, GitHub Pages, free hosting, even EC2 will let you do that for cheap. I've came across several mostly dead IBs recently that were hosted on free services. Postbox Garden could have kept operating (save for the expensive TLD they'd have to change to something cheaper), but maybe the person running it decided to pull the plug regardless. I can kind of guess how it must have felt like to have to look at it occasionally while having nothing to upload.

Ironically, even though it's never been easier and cheaper to run things, not many people do that. I'm partially guilty to that as well, though, but I'll try to change that one thing someday.
589 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-04 02:07
One of the two former postmasters of postbox.garden is active on /tea/, you can ask them if you're really curious, or ask for their blessing to recreate the service if you want it to exist.

Figured I'd make another post as I plan to add a VERY big update to Peelopaalu.neocities.org sometime tonight if all goes well. Should give you guys quite a few new sites to have a look through that you probably haven't seen before. Would be cool to discuss a few of them ITT as they seem up your guys' alley.

I'll be highlighting some details about this update in a post on the "News" page later tonight for anyone who's interested in giving it a read. :^)
593 Name: Snooper : 2020-06-12 14:48
Annnd the update is out. 100 new links and a short news post. Hope you Letterbox dudes enjoy it.

Which in turn has a list of even more cool sites on the bottom. What a nice rabitt hole.
598 Name: Snooper : 2020-06-13 16:15
>>594
Nope, not scrapped - I actually made a smaller update of about 35 links less than a week ago. I just have a lot going on IRL at the moment that I'm having to focus my time on so I don't have as much free time to work on the site as I'd like to. I gave a quick rundown of it on the news page. I'm glad that you like it, Anon.
>>595
>>596
Newest entry on the directory is "The History of the Web", which is the 561st link on the directory, you can CTRL+F to find it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've considered adding a numbering system to the site so people can CTRL+F to find the latest entries, but I don't want to give the impression that there's some sort of ranking system in place. Any suggestions on how I can go about this? Maybe add a "(NEW!)" tag to the latest entries or something and then remove the tag after a week or something? Lemme know if you guys have any ideas.
599 Name: Paperplane : 2020-06-13 17:11
>>598
Maybe just append the newest entry to the bottom of the list (or on top) so they're in chronologiccal order?
600 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-13 17:22
Does anyone else feel like imageboards are dying these days? So many have fallen in the past couple of years and their communities with it. I don't know why I still stick round, knowing that any of these sites could go down without a moments notice.
601 Name: Snooper : 2020-06-13 20:34
>>599
They currently *are* in chronological order. Oldest added links at the top, newest added links at the bottom.

When I said that the newest entry was "The History of the Web", I meant that it was the first new link *in the update* - Every link that comes after "The History of the Web" is a new addition in this update. Sorry for the confusion due to my poor wording.
602 Name: Paperplane : 2020-06-13 20:53
>>601
Aaah, I understand.
Okay, do you update in batches? Then I would do
Maybe add a "(NEW!)" tag to the latest entries
and keep that until the next batch of links comes.
603 Name: Snooper : 2020-06-14 13:13
>>602
Okay, do you update in batches?
Yes, always.

The "(NEW!)" tags are something I will definitely consider doing with future updates for sure. I'll try and figure out the best/nicest looking way of doing it.

Yes. The Bus Stop is hosted on-prem and the admin's moving out of his current apartment. Might be out for a week, hopefully it'll come back faster.

Most of the obscure boards have been taken down or have no significant activity whatsoever. Almost all of the imageboards linked in this thread no longer exist. The few active boards left are so small (<50 posters) that you can easily tell who's posting based on their linguistic patterns.

This is an interesting and comfy place that archives all the music from the weather channel. Dude has audio that goes back almost 40 years. Really good for a nostalgia trip.
