Peelopaalu Link-Hunt Stream! Come Chat with Me @ 17:00(ish)BST | (01/10/2020)
Hi there! I’m going to be hosting a Peelopaalu stream today (01/October/2020) on Twitch at around 17:30 - 18:00 (BST). If you’d like to tune in and chat with me while we hunt down some weird old stuff on the net, you can do so by clicking here! In the unlikely event that there are any delays, keep your eyes on my Twitter feed @Snooper, as that's where I'll be posting any updates I need to make leading up to the stream!
Could be fun to check out some of your guy's websites on-stream if you have anything you want me to show off, so feel free to drop in and self-promote! I look forward to hopefully having some of you join me!

22 New Links, The Death of Outburst & IRL Stress! | (19/09/2020)
"Holy shit, you're still alive?" - Yep, still kicking.
I know it's been forever since I last wrote a news article and over a month since I last updated the directory, so I figured it was about time I got around to filling you all in. I have not abandoned Peelopaalu, and I still do "behind the scenes" stuff on the site occasionally (such as looking for links to add to the directory), but I have had (and still do have) more pressing commitments in my life I have to deal with at the moment. Things have been so mental lately that I just have 0 spare time for my hobby projects, to the degree where RSA and I have both decided to discontinue the Outburst Project that we've had going on in the background these last four years. IRL stuff is nuts right now in part thanks to COVID messing up my job prospects, and in part due to stressing over visa stuff that my partner and I are STILL dealing with. I appreciate that my personal issues are not what you're here to read about, but I just feel like it's important to keep anyone who's still interested in the site "in the loop" with the reasons for the lack of updates as of late.
I've also fixed 22 downed links and added 22 new ones to the directory for you guys to check out, so let me know what you think if you get chance to check them out!
Sorry for the slightly tired-rant nature of this news-post, I've just been under a lot of stress lately and quite frankly, I haven't been feeling the best in general. I hope you guys understand my situation, and I hope you're cool with the fact that the directory won't be updated as rapidly as it was during the early days of the site for the time being. Going forward, that could change, but for now? I don't want to make any promises that I cannot keep to you guys.
Thanks a lot for supporting the site, and I appreciate your patience with the slower updates. If you want to get in touch, you can do so below via email or find me on Twitter @Snooper.

The 100 Link Update, A Tribute To The Old-Web | (12/06/2020)
Been a while since I’ve done one of these, but hey, now’s as good of a time as any.
The latest Peelopaalu update was put out today, and consists of 100 new links for you to browse through. You’ll probably notice quite quickly that a large portion of these new links are ancient Tripod and Angelfire websites that have been left unattended for the last two decades, and there’s a reason for that: I realised that a lot of these websites are probably coming up to their 20th Birthday this year, and I figured what’s a better way to honour the web of the past than to put a spotlight on it and check out some personal webpages of times gone by?
Let me know if you find something you like. I always find it neat when people tell me how they’ve found something they enjoy on Peelopaalu!Another thing:
As I’m sure you’re all aware, there’s a global pandemic going on at the minute and Mrs Snooper and I are trying to make ends meet through everything that is going on. We’re getting no real assistance at all from the UK government and they’re actually making things even worse for us financially at the moment which is causing me quite a lot of stress. I’ve not really had much time lately to focus on the things I enjoy doing (such as Peelopaalu), and I feel like that’s contributed to the aforementioned high levels of stress I’ve been suffering with. Even though we’re nowhere near seeing the light at the end of the tunnel yet, I feel that it’s important that I make an active effort to try and focus some of my energy on doing the things I enjoy doing, as I have a hunch that spending 100% of time stressing over bills and other less-relaxing things in my life probably isn’t good for my long-term health. Y’know JUST A HUNCH.
To close, I get how people are here for the links and not the quick rundown on my life, but I just thought that I’d fill you in anyway - I really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding when I have extended absences from updating the site, and rest assured that I definitely haven’t forgot that this is a thing and people do occasionally browse it according to my site statistics.
I hope you all enjoy this latest update, and I encourage you to send me an email if you have any questions or link suggestions for future additions to the directory.
