2000 (new color scheme)

Oh, my inbox on Tue, Sep 195h, 2000:

I intend to travel a lot, so I might just do that.

Pathetically, I've never been to NY. Been to just about everywhere else it seems.

fort stevens ROCKS. been camping there forever. do u still have pics up from that?

we originally started camping there b/c we were too young to drink, so like any good kids, we'd go camping to get smashed. then we all came of age, and just were hooked. we'd actually camp ON the beach, instead of in the campsites though. we went as much as once a month, we'd alternate camping between on the beach at the fort and up at crystal lake on mt hood.

The cool thing is... since you hate breaking links, we can use the archived copy of your front page to find all the stuff you hid!

Then we can find something interesting to do.

I swear to the depths of my soul that I LOVE you.

I had some essays on a site that was pulled down when the sponsor pulled free hosting. One of those essays was very near and dear to me but all my personal backups had been lost.

I had looked in an archive a few months ago and it wasn't there. But it was a different archiving system.

I found my essays in what you posted.

Thank you so much!!!

o'reilly article on the wayback machine

I discovered the archive a few months ago, and stumbled upon this article today via Slashdot:

http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/webservices/2002/01/18/brewster.html?page=1. It's good reading.

Re: o'reilly article on the wayback machine

Re: o'reilly article on the wayback machine

Yeah, I thought about the LJ clustering thing as I read that.

And they use almost entirely open source. Rock on.

Does anyone else remember when Alexa first hit the scene? I actually used it for a bit, then it got annoying.
