For those of you who remember what the Internet looked like in 1997, you will know the following. Hotmail was not owned by Microsoft, Yahoo was the only real search engine, BackRub Google had not yet been launched; Myspace, and Facebook were not on the Internet. forums were few and far between.

There was Bolt.com an American web site that didn’t suck (in the beginning) and it was really the only place to hang out.

over time it started sucking, and some time a few years back they brought out a Bolt2.com that sucked lots, and in an attempt to move the Regs from Bolt to Bolt2 they killed Bolt. oh and then they got sued out of existence; (read more on wikipedia)

Today I received the following message via email

Bolt.com is Back! And it’s packed with new Features and Upgrades!!!
Hey Skippy,
We just wanted to let you know that Bolt is back! Come see your old profile and friends.  And check out Tagbooks and all the new features just launched!!
Looking forward to seeing you around the site,

Now unfortunately it is not bolt that they brought back, they revived Boltfolio a site that well.. Sucks.

So Close yet so Far; they failed to get the revival right.

Rest in Peace Bolt
