About the Wayback Machine

Browse through 10 billion web pages archived from 1996 to a few months ago. To start surfing the Wayback, type in the web address of a site or page where you would like to start, and press enter. Then select from the archived dates available. The resulting pages point to other archived pages at as close a date as possible. Keyword searching is not currently supported, but there are some researcher tools that perform similar functions (see the researcher tool section).

http://archive.bibalex.org, the Internet archive at the New Library of Alexandria, Egypt, mirrors the Waybck Machine. Try your search there when you have trouble connecting to the Wayback servers.
