Allpet Roaches Posted July 23, 2007 Share Posted July 23, 2007 It's interesting that even after sites have been removed and messages have been deleted there are web archives that catch a lot of the information and store it (forever?). One problem with the old Allpet Roaches message board was that messages were deleted after 500 (years ago after 300) and wouldn't be accessible through web searches. I asked a friend to check out the web archives and found many hundreds or thousands of the old posts had been archived back to 2002. The archived roach page from 1999 shows the message board link and each of the archived pages display many of the posts as part of the page archive. The archived posts from the pages show up as text while the archived messages on the boards show up as links and a few of those are blocked. It's interesting that anywhere from 40-70% of the original posts since 99' are accessible online but it does take a bit of effort to find them. While this post isn't completely off-topic or "other" it does show how wonderful (or scary) the net is for saving things that you thought were gone.
