Gizmonics tech not built to last

On a lark, I wandered over to check on MST3K alum Joel Hodgson’s Gizmonics website, only it’s gone. Apparently, I haven’t looked for it for quite a while because it went down back in 2000:

“In the fall, regular visitors to Joel’s website noticed that it was suddently unreachable. A few days later it reappeared as the gateway to a pornography site, and stunned fans who looked into the matter learned that Joel was no longer the owner of the URL. Feeling that the appearance at Columbia earlier in the year was an appropriate coda to the MST3K portion of his life, he had decided to let the URL lapse.”
