Wayback Machine

Hubby called this morning - he's at the office - to ask if I knew about "", he's always on the lookout for internet things I should know about. Of course the site rang a bell but the content didn't immediately come to mind. I stammered into the phone something like "Is that the site that archives newsgroups?" It was early, I didn't sleep well last night, and well sometimes I'm just dense. But then the logo popped up on my screen, "Ahhhh the Wayback Machine, I love the Wayback Machine."

I love the site but haven't been there in quite a while. So I explained what the site does to hubby, who also likes the idea of seeing website development over time. While we talked I entered prolurker's url just to see if they are now archiving blogs as well. Interestingly this site is in the archive, but only for 2004. I found the following in their FAQ that may explain the lag.

Right now there is a 6-12 month lag between the date a site is crawled and the date it appears in the Wayback Machine.

So we are up on ancient internet history, it's the near history that has problems.

Great so now I know I can check the Wayback for earlier versions of blogs I am researching. May be some interesting developmental info buried there.
