If you haven’t seen the Wayback Machine before, check it out|http://www.archive.org/. It’s basically a tool that allows you to access an archive of old websites – sites that potentially no longer exist, but were at one point picked up and indexed by a search engine. It can be fun to plug in your own website, if you’ve had one for a while. Or check out the website of your favorite company – compare it as it looked in December, 1996|http://web.archive.org/web/19961220034827/http://www.chrbook.com/, to how it looks now|http://www.christianbook.com.
I’ve done a little personal archaeological dig, web-chaeological if you will, into my own websites’ pasts. I’ve attempted to find reliable archives from past incarnations of my websites, and I’ve collected the best links I could find all together in one place:
Peter’s Wayback Archive|http://prwdot.org/?p=wayback
If you have known me for a while, you might get a kick out of reading some of these pages, and particularly in checking out some of the photo galleries. There are some pics out there that I don’t even have in my own archives! The oldest reliable archive I could find dates back to five years ago, December, 1998. I know I had some webpages before that, but they just didn’t turn up in the Wayback Machine.
