February 24th 2014, a little over three years ago… That’s the last time a post was made on BringBackReBoot.com. Despite the following statement: “Check back often for the latest data on the net.” at the top of the page, there was never an update posted for “The Guardian Code”. Similarly, even though the page says that “Here you will find ReBoot news, ReBoot merchandise and competitions.”, there were never any competitions, and the only merchandise consisted of a limited selection of shirts, mugs and buttons.
The abandonment of this website should come as no surprise. Up until this past January, ReBoot.com was left to wither into a digital wasteland, populated by spambots. In the 4 and a half years the site was left to die, the web-comic stopped loading, glitches occurred, links failed to direct to their intended target, and of course no mention of “The Guardian Code” was ever made.
As was the case with both sites, you were able to register your email for a newsletter….yet the newsletter never came.
Hopefully, despite 2 months elapsing since ReBoot.com received an updated 404 page and nothing more, there are plans to have an active website that won’t be left in the digital dust.
