  11. <p><b>11-20-19</b> <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/13/20963459/youtube-google-coppa-ftc-fine-settlement-youtubers-new-rules">YouTube & COPPA</a> - I know the rule applies to the whole internet; I've been thinking of it on & off since I started my homepage about three years ago. My understanding is the rule only applies to commercial services, but I'm not entirely sure. I am no lawyer; I put a notice on my site that it's only for ages 13 & up, even tho everything I post is family friendly. Changed it to 16 when the EU enacted their stricter privacy laws last year, I think. But I'm still not sure. I need to make time to write up an actual privacy policy...somehow. Gotta worry about YouTubers from other countries. I'd hate to find all the Nara Dreamland videos deleted; there are archives of ads, opening ceremonies, TV shows filmed there on channels I follow, but the posters only seem to know Japanese. I've heard they plan to eliminate kid vids from search results. That seems wrong; Disney & PBS Kid's websites don't include a robots.txt file banning Googlebot, do they?
  12. <p> I meant to post this on the 9th, but didn't get to: <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/19990208021229/http://www.videopac.com/">Old-Site of the Day: VideoPac.com</a> Another from the Game Nexus list. This had a different address, but when I looked it in the Wayback Machine up I was re-directed to this address. The VideoPac was the European version of the Odyssey^2. No longer exists at that address. Had info on the games, hardware, & emulation, plus a FAQ mirrored from somewhere else. The Wayback machine ddin't get the website's pictures, & on most pages you have to highlight the text to read it. Still some good information, including bits on two models which were never released stateside.

When Ilooked it up in the Wayback Machine, I discovered it had been moved to AtariHQ. AtariHQ is still hosting websites, including a modern version of this page: <a href="http://www.atarihq.com/danb/">Dan B's Videogame Tech Website</a>

A fan site fir the Vectrex from someone who never had one, but was always interested in the system. He finally got to experiance it via emulation.
