    you can have a lot of fun with this. just type in a website, and take a journey back through time to see what it looked like years ago. it's interesting to see what apple.com looked like 7 years ago. you can also do some minor navigation through the sites.

    see what MacRumors.com looked like on 5/10/00

    yeah, i use it often. i think it's an extemely important service. even though they've only been at it since 1996.

    their storage need must be atronomical though.

    oh man - in found this site about 6 months ago - i decided to see whether any of my old sites were in there, and sure enough - i found the first website i EVER made!! It was for a local curry take-away place near me and man was it awful. I think i made it in M$ publisher or something when i was like 14. I'm not going to show the URL as its that embarrasing.

    I would like to see that 1st website of yours! It's probably much better that your admitting. If you like me you tend to be very self critical! ;)

    One of myfirst sites doesn't load correctly, which is too bad. I'd love to have seen what was there.

    Yay! I love the wayback machine! I think one of the first things I ever did with it was seeing all of the archives of apple.com :D Good memories...

    This is great! I honestly had no memory of how my website looked in 1998. What a trip. :eek:

    I hope you're not talking about the food. We all know how embarassing it is to recommend a food place, only to have these people contract food poisoning. :eek:

    Of course, most probably, the first site everyone went to was Apple.

    But it looks so, minor computer 3rd party company.

    It looks like Kensington.
