Yeah, this is the kind of thing that amuses me.
del.icio.us, a social bookmarking site, looked like the next big thing for some time in the mid-2000s, just before Facebook and Twitter took over. These days, del.icio.us has basically been rendered obsolete through reddit, I guess.
I signed up over there with the same regrettable handle I still use here. In case you are lucky enough to never have witnessed it, RealPlayer was a horrible, horrible software that was inexplicably popular in the early 2000s. The program basically tried to invade your PC with advertisements for the benefit of being able to playback awful-looking, tinny-sounding video content.
Like many others, I stopped using del.icio.us around 2008, when the site was bought by Yahoo, and renamed "delicious". More recently, I became morbidly curious about the snapshot of a previous internet life my old bookmarks would provide me with. But my bookmarks didn't exist…
