My dad used to read "Ozy & Millie" online. The only reason he stopped was that the URL changed and he didn't know the new address (was ozyandmillie.com, is now www.ozyandmillie.org). Recently I mentioned I had some O&M books, and he wanted to read them, so I started lending them to him. They'd been scattered around my room in various locations, so I gave them to him in whatever order I found them. He's been enjoying them immensely!

Just now I checked online to familiarize myself with the titles, and found that [A] I have them all, including all the Plan Nine titles and the Lulu repackagings (plus a duplicate or three, oops), and [B] this is the first time they've ever been together. I think I shall keep them that way!

Your dad must be pretty lazy not to pursue the newer URL. Did he just assume that O&M was gone for good?

Actually, as I recall, it first became something hard to remember, possibly on angelfire or some such site, then it moved to either keenspot or keenspace for a while, and only relatively recently moved to ozyandmillie.org permanently. I think the first time it moved, the old site stayed up for a while without any updates, and Dad assumed it wasn't being drawn anymore.

Not everyone automatically goes to Google for everything, I suppose. ;) What's really sad is it's often easier for me to Google something than to find it in my own massive pile of bookmarks.

I don't see that as sad so much as impressive -- with regard to Google. :)
