When I had this website finished and posted, I checked the "Ex Webis" acronym on the Altavista search engine, with no results. Next, I checked for "Ex Webis" and I found a single website, a quite singular site. Upon access, I came up to a blank page with the following text on a big font: "Since my fingers are weak and my brain soft, I blew it, and have deleted the pages. Sorry. I'll fix this soon" (The original, in Spanish, was the following: "Como tengo los dedos flojos y el cerebro reblandecido la he preparao (sic) y he borrado las páginas. Perdón. Subsanaré el error en breve tiempo").

Suddenly, popping up from the upper left corner, comes a winged skull with the legend "Ex Webis Vidal Gª MCMXCVII". As long as the contrary is proven, this is the first known Ex Webis:


            Ex Webis of Vidal García



Several days later (June-282000) I found another site in the web "Deleted by Vidal Garcia's weak fingers" (In the original Spanish text: "borrada en su día por los dedos flojos de Vidal García"). An interesting site about literature, tango and paella recipes, among other subjects, which keeps the skull Ex Webis:
