When I first found this site, it was researching what the word tabernacle meant. I now know it means "a temporary lodging" thanks to Die.net.
I then saw that Die.net houses a lot of Linux information, which is also very useful.
Die.net's header reads: "Online since 1996, die.net hosts the collective 'net projects of a few dozen friends in the U.S."
But what strikes me is Die.net's purpose. To collect friends' Internet projects together in one place. Whose friends? I wonder...
The only information I could dig up was from a whois search of Die.net.
I found out that some person named Aaron Hopkins, from Los Angeles CA owns the .net.
I wish I had more backstory, that's half the fun of finding quirky little websites on the net.
Besides the interesting mystery though, there are a lot of interesting and useful tools on this website.
As I mentioned earlier, there is a plethora of useful Linux info on here.
I also found a guide to Python, A trace hop utility and a moon phase program, just to name a few of the quirky things hosted on this website. (Like a yarn store...)
I love finding these quirky little web pages that are tucked into the corner of the web. I suggest you give Die.net a look over.

While rummaging through the internet, I found this quirky website: http://www.deanliou.com/WinRG/WinRG2.htm
If you miss the days of Win 95, 98, ME or 2000 then you should give this a try.
If you do not miss how buggy these versions of windows were, then don't.
I got a chuckle from it myself.
Here are a few sneak peeks into the madness of Windows RG:

Personally the second image here is my favorite. I couldn't stand that paperclip. So buggy and intrusive.
Sorry this is such a short stub of a an article, but digging up information on the creators or any other info about it has been unfruitful.
