  • This is pretty old stuff and done by some teenagers while in high school ... gotta love these dated quotes from the "About the Site" section:
    At home, I have a 300 Mhz pentium equivlent with 33.6 modem 4 gig hard drive and 32 megs RAM, and also a 150 Mhz 32 megs RAM computer downstairs.
    I have a PII 400 Mhz composite computer, and on it, I use Corel Wordperfect 8.0 and Paint Shop Pro 5.0 frequently...
    • Well yeah, but it's still nasty stuff and people are obviously coming across it. I tried emailing both the webmaster and the contact address on the site but both addresses bounced back.

      Looks like the domain is now owned by Oracle. They probably don't even know the content is there.
      • It's still active, from the looks of the homepage. The Terms of Use link to "thinkquest.ww@oracle.com" to contact them, don't know if that's one of the ones you tried or not.
  • Well, not really [thinkquest.org]...

    I would say that the really scary part is the test area [thinkquest.org]... Luckily, that part of the site is too old, and my nice little print "$^X $] $^O\n"; didn't work.

  • I love this one...

    The most common uses of Perl are:

    1. Guestbook
    2. Counters
    3. Feedback forms
    4. Custom homepages
    5. Login and passwords
    6. Message boards

    Funny, I've hardly done any of those things with Perl.
