Footguy Storms the Web


NOTE: This page is Netscape-Enhanced. You must have Netscape Navigator 1.1 or better to hang ten here. For the best results, make sure that you set your Options | Preferences | Cache and Network | Verify Documents to Once per Session.

Lynx users and other non-Netscapers can telnet to W.A.S.T.E. as the user "footguy" and see the glory of Footguy on a VT-100 terminal.

The current world record for watching Footguy (telnet version) is 14 hours, 43 minutes by kson@wired.jolt.com. If you beat this record, report it to lamers@waste.org. We'll confirm it in our logs, and put your name on the Footguy Page!

This page was written to exploit the amazing features of Netscape's proposed HTML 3.0 specifications. To demonstrate the incredible power of dynamic document updating, I have ported the popular utility Footguy, the official screensaver of:

LameNESS Magazine

to the web.

Also note: Footguy is not very friendly.


New and Improved! (But looks exactly the same as the old one!)
