the web archive Answered

the web archive at web.archive.org is one of the best websites I've seen. 
(yes instructables is another.) 
Ive known about it for a while and wanted to share it. 
It lets you go back to past versions of web pages, 
simply enter the url and hit "take me back"

For as big as it is, you can search a lot, though not everything is there. 

Note: Sadly instructables is not searchable from this site due to a file labeled "robots.txt" which prevents them from searching instructables.

It's interesting to take a look at some of the bigger websites such as apple.com, google.com, facebook.com, etc. and see what they looked like in their infancy.

The internet has truly come a long way.

Yea, nothing I've gone looking for was in there - what was the best you got out of it?

I found a web game that was missing. The first to find it of 250+ people who wanted to know what had happened to it.
You don't always find what you are looking for - the servers aren't that big.

I can see that you'll need more strategy later on, but I just gat the hang of how it works and left it for later.
