The Web changes constantly, and sometimes that page that had just the information you needed yesterday (or last month or two years ago) is not available today. At other times you may want to see how a page's content or design has changed. There are several sources for finding Web pages as they used to exist. While Google's cache is probably the best known, the others are important alternatives that may have pages not available at Google or the Wayback Machine plus they may have an archived page from a different date. Note that none of these include all Web pages. For more details on searching the Wayback Machine, see my article "The Wayback Machine: The Web's Archive."

After some time in the typewriter, adding machine, and hand-held calculator markets, Commodore became first company to announce that it was producing a consumer-friendly home computer (the PET 2001). Before they filed bankruptcy in 1994, Commodore had also managed to produce the worlds first multi-media computer (the Amiga) , and what is still today the best selling computer model of all time (the Commodore 64). Although this once dominant company is no more, they still yet live in the hearts of those who loved and appreciated this early pioneer in the realm of personal computers. The first Commodore I ever layed fingers on was a PET-4032 in 6th grade. If you find anything in here you have questions or comments about, feel free to leave me email right here.
