The Wayback Machine

The Internet can be an ephemeral place. Most sites change regularly, sometimes daily. Some disappear completely. This quality of the web can be downright frustrating. What was here is gone. There’s even a term for it – the broken link. Before you give up, try out the Wayback Machine. It is an archive of the web pages going back as far as 1996. It does not house all web pages but it does have billions of old ones that are easily accessible. Here is the link. Warning: Use of the Wayback Machine can be fun: seeing how much web pages and sites have changed – for example.
