How has that domain not expired? Who pays to renew a site but never updates the content.

Honestly, though, kinda want to find an old machine and get all the doodads to trick it out with daystar/diimo/etc chips, ram, vram, caches and the like.

I have an old Color Classic that I did that with.

A google search suggests the place is still in business. Most likely a small business providing mac tech support at this point. I'm tempted to call the number but I wouldn't want to bother the guy if he actually picks up.

The site was built with Claris Homepage 3.0...built on a Mac so it must be good!

Private registration, so we may never know who in this case.

But it's not unique.

I registered a domain in 2002. There was a similar-named domain that I wanted to snag because of potential typos and I found that it was already registered to Aladdin Systems. They didn't even have a placeholder. Nothing parked there. No MX record. Nuthin.

I put a change-alert on the domain so that when it expired I'd get a notification.

I have received notice that the expiration date has changed every year as they renewed the domain registration.

Smith Micro acquired Aladdin and kept up the renewals. Eventually, they forwarded all traffic from the domain to my.smithmicro.com.

Love it. Also, it brings back a time when we could do stuff to our machines. But I'm not into going back in time.
