Default Time machine back to the web's earliest days

I am not sure where to put this.... Our Lounge is heavily visited, so here we go... Check out www [dot] waybackmachine [dot] org

This archives internet pages from long ago. Amazing what you will find !

Sleuths in academe use the wayback machine to look for fraud. You can't remove all your footprints!

btw, "Wayback Machine" I think refers to Rocky and Bullwinkle.

I use it when I am feeling nostalgic about the cyber squatter I accidentally allowed to steal my original domain name when I did not reregister before the registration expired. I have a .net domain now as a result. Periodically I try to get it back, but they want exorbitant money for a domain that is associated with my long dead business.. lol

Nostalgic about once every 4yrs.. It is parked now.. I'm not willing to pay.

It's interesting to go back to a time when passlabs published service manuals.

I was watching a program about the internet past and present. It said that eventually it will become so overloaded and run out of space. Is that even possible?

Depends on how many people are watching movies I guess:

https://www.sandvine.com/pr/2013/11/...work-data.html

There is a continual expansion of the web bandwidth, while simultaneously the providers are pushing greater BW to customers.

Can the increases in trunk line bandwidth Keep up with or exceed the increase in movie downloads?
