What happened to www.futuramaoutlet.com?

This site had a lot of useful information (like images of Alien Languages appearances in Tv Guide ads, Spin magazine or AdAge magazine)

Does anyone know if the page has moved or disappeared?

and does anyone know where can I find these lost images?

The Outlet closed more than a year ago.  There were some rumors about a comeback, but sadly it didn't happen.

A version still exist in the Internet Archive. Clickity-click!

That thing bites because it can never keep pictures. Test is all well and good, but without pictures... whats the point?

One thing I don't get is, why I can't save the header as anything else than a bitmap picture, it's obviously a *.gif.

Another downer about the Archive is that it have problems with php sites.

Anywho, another possibility is the German off-shoot www.futuramaoutlet.de  I don't know it they shared content or it was just the layout.

Good, cuz I'm starting. The German site is what the original once was, except for the message board. Remember when the FO board had its topics arranged in tree-branching style? Those were the days.

I loved the Outlet's message board - met some great folk there (way back in early 2000-ish) that I still regularly chat with. Good times.

Big bump!

Since when is The Futurama Outlet [http://www.futuramaoutlet.com] online again? Not updated since 2001 but is back there... I don't know if many of you remember that site, it was awesome back when Futurama begun in 1999

I thought the domain was used by Toyzz and redirected to theris site (toyzz.com) back in 2002

*gasp*

I don't believe it! This was my favourite Futurama site back then. I wonder if it is under old management?

Whoa, no way! Probably the first website I ever visited regularly... very nostalgic ressurection there, from the ".gif" age of the internet.

The fan art section is even intact and the games can be downloaded too. smile

I remember I stole their icons when I started TFP in 1999.. but well, I removed them after an email from them big grin

I was young, and then I learned that original content was required to make a successful website!  smile

Check it out, new episodes in February!

I really am surprised it's still up though. It was one of my first sites, too. They had that great "Got Emperor" pic of Fry with glowing emperor in his belly big grin

Aww man, it's just so cool and retro. big grin

Check out this explanation of how the alien alphabet was decoded right after the pilot aired by a very clever piece of code-breaking:

I remember when I got my first computer and this was one of the first 2 websites I would visit. So many awesome memories and friends made there, a couple of them I'm still in contact with to this day.

With the fandom now at an all time high and new episodes airing again, it's possible that it could make a comeback? Or maybe that's just wishful thinking. I suppose if it ever did, it wouldn't be the same. no no

The fact that somebody has been hosting it for quite some time is a bit freaky, considering it was down for the better part of a decade.

It's possible that the domain is being paid for via automatic withdrawl. Though I can't imagine continueing to pay for a domain that your no longer updating. Whatever the case may be, I'm glad that it's still there for viewing sake.

Read up a ways to see JavieR's post, and I can certainly confirm the site was completely down for several years.
