The Time Machine

"Looking for the world, when you've opened up your eyes, you'll see you've got invisible chains, they're only lies, not what it seems, I hear your silent screams"
- Ronnie James Dio, Black Sabbath, Time Machine

The Internet Archive is massive, so massive that it can become quite overwhelming at times to the point where you don't know where to look. This page is here to help you find some of the better archives (rather than the rest of the crap).


State of Georgia Vs. Mr. Allen Transcript (2016)

Amazing transcript of a real court case of Mr Allen, a murder defendant, who kept on shouting obscenities at the judge, and then threatened to kill members of the judge's family. Very much of a long read, but worth it.

Diving Horse (1923)

Outdated, but still interesting, video demonstrating 19-year-old "Jackie" Carvan's horse leaping off a large platform into a body of water.

Hitler rehearsing his speech in front of the mirror (1925)

Photos of Hitler taken by Nazi photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, so Hitler could practice for an upcoming recorded speech.

Marine Doom (1995)

Doom II mod made by the U.S. Army as a way to train marines. Outdated, but still worth a play, if not for the interest.

MTV Online (1996)

Rather fitting that MTV was one of the first music TV stations, and that it should also be the first website archived on the Wayback Machine.

Albums, and demos by musicians hanging around the north east of England.

The History and the Evolution of Computer Viruses (2011)

JenniCam (1996 - 2003)

JenniCam was the first web-based "lifecaster". Jennifer Kaye Ringley would set up a number of cameras in her house that would take photos of her, and would be then sent to the Web where anyone could view them.

Example of how it looked like at the time (guest version): https://web.archive.org/web/19991013041704/http://jennicam.org:80/guests/liveupdating.html, https://web.archive.org/web/20000229164406/http://jennicam.org:80/guests/liveupdating.html

Around 1998, Howard A. Landman would write a number of poems dedicated to Jennifer Ringley, his site is still up as of writing, but was last updated on the 3rd of September 2003: http://www.polyamory.org/~howard/Jenni/

Credit to joppiesaus who first found the sites.
