Way back in time

In the old days, way back in 2005, Paul started a blog on AOL, what we wanted to do is transfer all the information (with maybe a little editing) over here, We found that the nice people at AOL have closed there blogs and Paul's had gone, that's a nice thing to do, isnt it? But help was at hand from Computer nerd and helpful geek Keith Eckstein (Keiths site, living in brittany) , who gave me this link.

So what is it? Well its the The Wayback Machine and using there words

"Browse through 85 billion web pages archived from 1996 to a few months ago. With the rapid growth of the Internet and the World Wide Web, millions of people have grown accustomed to using these tools as resources to acquire information; and the availability of electronic information is taken for granted. However, it is a fallacy that if something is on the web, it will be there forever. The average lifespan of a web page is 44 -75 days. There's an urgent need for people to understand that that web is who we are. It's our culture and our social fabric, and we don't want to lose any of it. What is here today might be gone tomorrow. "

So don't give up on lost blogs or websites, look here.

So coming soon our 2005 blog, unfortunately a lot of pictures have been lost, but all the text remains.
