Classic sites about to disappear

For as long as I remember, this and this sites have been on the top Google results when searching for "Little Big Adventure" (although I never really got why...). Yahoo have announced recently that they are shutting down Geocities, meaning they will probably delete those sites sooner or later...
Just for nostalgia's sake, maybe someone can mirror them?

What are you chin wagging about?
Those aren't at the top, or even on the first page.
Magicball Network is surprisingly far down as well...

Simon's site doesn't even come up for me, I get a Yahoo message saying that the service is temporarily unavailable.

I got that to Kobold, and I think Medur's idea is a great one. I or a second thought of doing it myself.

btw. Maybe we should sent an email to the site creator? He's not a known MBNer (or member of any old community), right?

I managed to access Simon's site when I first saw the thread. Seems like it's just a technical problem with the server, nothing to worry about

Yea I know a bit about simon and of his presence . But what about the other link?

also: some1 should check dmoz and perhaps backup other good old sites.

I loved this old interview with Frédérick Raynal.

It would be nice to save it (Beware, it has 3 pages)

This is really freaky.
I just went onto this thread and pressed the first "this" to see what it was.
I then pressed the "Lba3" link to see what s**t he had wrote about it.
I got a page from yahoo saying that the website had been deleted.
I kept retrying the main page (the first "this") but yahoo said it had been deleted.
Did they shut down because me spending 5 seconds on their webpage is too much?

Oh and Kitarii it is not far down, when you google for "Little Big Adventure" or "Little Big Adventure 2", the Magicball Network is always 3rd from the top on the first page.
