The web.archive.org Wayback Machine – A trip down memory lane

Written by James McDonald

November 23, 2010

If you wonder what content your site had or how it looked months and even years ago http://web.archive.org may be the place to visit.

I just had a look at my site http://web.archive.org/web/*/https://toggen.com.au/ and there are pages from as far back as 2003. I didn’t even know that I had jamesmcdonald.id.au then. It triggered a little bit of nostalgia to the days when I didn’t rely on wordpress to manage my content. Sigh…

The strange thing when looking at my site at web.archive.org is there are no pages from 2009/2010. I’m thinking that the amount of content on the web is simply too great to archive but looking at jamesmcdonald.id.au’s access logs for today the ia_archiver bot is still scanning the site so I’m not sure why the last two years doesn’t show up.

Anyway check your own site out. You may have flashbacks like I did.
