Just wanted to let you guys know there is a great tool out there for viewing archived websites. This is great if you want to see what a website looked like years ago, or if you want to see a website that used to exist but no longer does.

Take a look at the Internet Archive's "Wayback Machine":
http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

Just put in a complete web address in the blank and hit the "Take Me Back" button.

I've been using this for years. Here's a great example of its usefulness. The Silversides website no longer exists at http://www.silversides.org but I want to see what it used to look like.

January 24, 2001 the website looked like this:

http://web.archive.org/web/20010124031400/http://www.silversides.org/

Want to see more of what the Silversides site has looked like over the years? Look at these results:

http://web.archive.org/archive_request_ng?collection=web&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.silversides.org&Submit=Take+Me+Back

TONS of different looks over time. Each link with the "*" beside it means that the site was updated in some way since the previous archive.

Have fun!
