Huh. That's really interesting. Why does it stop at 2008?

No idea. I've seen some others go as far as 2009, but that was it.

Interesting site. I remember you showing me this, Yui.

I wonder how much if at all my old site was saved.

Avelina, is your old The Ring site on there? xD

Oh you know, I never even thought to look at boards. Or was there a website too that I'm just forgetting about?

I was thinking and perhaps it's because you switched to Wordpress? Most of the 2008 ones after you switched to Wordpress didn't work right, so it's possible that it stopped archiving them.

I think you did a pretty good job way-back-when, Yui. :) And it made me feel a bit like a turd because you've been UYS all by yourself for so long, and I just joined up in, what, 2009?  :-[ But I'm really glad you welcomed me and I love how great we work together. <3

Yeah, that probably is it. I think it was the same with Digital Perversion, too.

I didn't mind doing it alone for a while. For years I was running two different sites and actually it fell behind the other, but it didn't bother me that much. It's nice to have someone else around now though. Helps keep me a little more motivated and a second opinion is always nice to have.  Plus you are the awesome :P

Cracked.com looked terrible in 2001. And I can't say I think hotmail.com looked very attractive in 1996. OH, THE PRETTY BOXES!
