How would I find it? Suggestions anyone? This was in the
very early days of the web, when there wasnt much stuff out
there. Theres no guarantee it is still around, and if so, how
the heck to find it.

Which brings me to another point: It seems like some sort
of snapshot of the web on any given day since its inception
would be someday priceless. I can check my personal records
and figure out which day I found the site {it was sometime in
1994}, then given just the content that was there then, I could
find that site again. Now, Im at a loss.

Computer gurus among us: is it possible to save some form of
a snapshot of theweb with content on a specific day? spike
