"Space Jam" Website Still Online (warnerbros.com)

I used to run the servers for this site back in 2001 and it was old then. Sad to see that www2 has still survived, that was the result of a migration off some older servers. I'm not surprised that nothing has been cleaned up, we were still running Netscape Enterprise Server about 5 years after everyone else had given up on it and moved to Apache. They had a compiled NSAPI module to serve ads though and the company had gone out of business so we couldn't get an Apache module. They used to buy so many domain combinations for each new movie that we had to set up a separate cluster just to do 302 redirects to the canonical name for each otherwise the configs became unmanageable.

It's unfortunate that the sites and links that stay up are the outliers we remember, rather than the norm.

It's interesting to see how HTML has changed since 17 years ago, especially since this was probably created before CSS was a standard (or at least not widely used). I had never even heard of the <nobr> tag before.

I like the comments on the html: <!--Ads - Don't Touch!*-->

<!-- I programmed my home computer to beam myself into the future. -->

<!-- Fame requires every kind of excess. -->

<!-- Bless the beasts and the children. -->

Looking at this page on a retina screen is like watching the pixel heat death of the universe. Everything is so tiny and zoomed out! I wonder if this trend will continue now that pixel densities have approached human perceptibility limits.

Ah, well, can't have everything. Maybe there is no privacy?

1996 internet wasn't as obsessed with privacy as 2013 ...

This is one of the first websites I visited as a kid! I love the "Fifth Element" reference in the code.

The trailer and other video clips unfortunately appear to be gone :-(
