The Wayback Machine - turning back time to seen your website in the past
In trying to fix a broken link in that i18n post, I went to the Web Archive at http://www.archive.org. It's amazing to me how FEW people know about and use this. Sure, you can use the Google Cache to "Tivo" pages that may be temporarily down, but with the Wayback Machine (archive.org) you can see pages that are LONG GONE, or even from domains that are no longer in existance.
Here's some interesting tidbits. Zen moment here folks? This was only 8 years ago. Oy. Show these to your kids, and remind them that there wasn't always a web. :)
