Stumbled across an interesting tidbit while reading a story about a young woman suing her former high school for using a Facebook photo without her permission (BTW . . . they didn't make 18 year olds like that when I was in high school . . . sheesh).

Anyway, the story referenced an internet archive called Wayback Machine: http://archive.org/web/web.php

If you type in a URL, it will potentially identify archived "snapshots" of a website at different times.

I was disappointed to find that that www.sportsonly.com/10514/ didn't have any archived "snapshots." Would have loved to dig out some old posts by Gary, VOR and, of course, No. 12 and whether I could find my original post when I joined this "family" in the late 90s.

A second effort led me to this: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www ... 0514/bin/*

I forgot about needing the "/a/" in the address. Some familiar names.

If you go back to pittsburghsports.net around 2000, you can see Pittsburgh Sports Digest that I started. Fun times.
