I saw an article online that I really liked but that site hasn't
worked now for at least 3 weeks. What happened? The site is$227
and even doesn't work anymore. I'm pretty bummed.
Is there anyway to still view the article for a paper I'm doing?

Hello agentmc,

Thankfully for your paper, a group of researchers have been batty
enough to archive the entire state of the Internet for the past eight
years!  The Internet Archive holds a record of entire websites, with
snapshots taken every few months or so.

Their record of the URL you're looking for has the original web page
stored twice, under the dates Oct 19, 2000 and Feb 03, 2001.  They
have further entries, but it seems that after that point the Worldlink
web servers began blocking the Internet Archive's spider, to conserve

I didn't notice any significant changes between the two dates, so
likely this is the content you need.  The most recent copy of that web
page can be found at the following URL:$227

No search strategy was used, I just happened to know about the Archive already.

Hope this helps, and have a great day,
 - josh_g-ga

Since that big long URL didn't get automatically turned into a
hyperlink, and since it's really long and awkward with that extra
"http://" inside it, I created a TinyUrl shortcut to the same page.
