Take Me Back In Time To Visit An Archived Version of The Internet

April 30, 2013

I actually developed an interest in computers that pre-dates the internet, as we know it (with the graphical user interface, html web pages, etc…). I can remember way back when, being in attendance at a local school where a representative from a large telecommunications company was speaking about computers and that something innovative was on the horizon that would change our lives, as we know it.  What he was talking about at the time was the building of the internet. No one in attendance, including myself, could really grasp at what he was talking about and just how important it would become.

It was some years later, as a result of computers and the internet, my life changed for me personally. Suddenly being labeled as a computer geek, I was thrust into a new career field (as an IT Manager) where I became part of that innovation of what we call internet. Our entire lives has been changed by the internet and the connectivity it has brought; AND, without it we would be at a great loss.

I started thinking about all of this; and, knowing the digital world being as it is, was there was a way to go back in time to revisit the internet in days past? You know, sort of reminisce…  It was after this thought that I remembered hearing about the Wayback Machine.

The Wayback Machine is “a service that allows people to visit archived versions of Web sites. Visitors to the Wayback Machine can type in a URL, select a date range, and then begin surfing on an archived version of the Web. Imagine surfing circa 1999 and looking at all the Y2K hype, or revisiting an older version of your favorite Web site. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine can make all of this possible”.

You are not going to find every site ever created out there, but the Wayback Machine is a great learning and research tool and is just plain interesting to see what the internet landscape looked like in years gone by. For example here is part of a page I pulled from Microsoft’s web site in December 1997:

You can also upload your own digital artifacts to the Wayback Machine, as well…

Building A Web Site Has Never Been Easier

April 8, 2013

If you ever dreamed of having your own web site without a lot of overhead and complexity, then take a look at Weebly

Weebly

Recently I was looking for a place to host Bookmarks4Techs.com and Weebly became the logical choice. First off, you have option to going into this for FREE; which is what I have initially done with Bookmarks4Techs.com. What really sold me on Weebly was that they allowed me to use my domain name (Bookmarks4Techs.com), , which is parked elsewhere, at Weebly.  Not only that, getting your website up and running is dead simple using their online website builder. You need no knowledge of HTML/CSS coding to build a site with Weebly; HOWEVER, if you have that knowledge, you have full control to completely customize the look and feel of your site.

Building a website on Weebly is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Our drag & drop website builder makes it dead simple to create a powerful, professional website without any technical skills required. Over 6 million people and small businesses have joined Weebly to build their online presence.

So far, my experience using Weebly to maintain Bookmarks4Techs has been a good experience and from what I am gathering, Weebly is currently in process of improving and adding more features. I do not know of another service out there that offers this much, when it comes to web site building.

Here is what you get with Weebly:

Online Drag and Drop Website Builder
Awesome Collection of 100 Plus Professional Themes
Powerful Hosting
Fast and Helpful Support
Easy Blogging
Photo Galleries and Slide Shows
Video and Audio Players

Be Sure To Visit My Sister Site – Bookmarks4Techs

November 5, 2011

If you are regular visitor to What’s On My PC, you surely have noticed that I have links posted to my sister site – Bookmarks4Techs.

image

Bookmark4Techs started out as a personal project of mine as a result of managing my personal blog – What’s On My PC.  When searching for content for my blog, I found myself constantly trolling the internet in search of the latest and the greatest in computers, software, and information technology.

I found, for the matter of convenience, that if I listed the sites I regularly visited on a web page, I could troll the internet at a much faster rate (especially with today’s tabbed browsers). It was after a certain point of collecting numerous tech related websites that I realized that this collection may be of use and interest to others.  I love visiting other tech blogs (and sites) and I am constantly adding to this collection.  It is amazing how good theses sites and blogs really are.

Bookmarks4Techs is not just for techs; it is for everyone. As a matter of fact it is a great conduit to Amazon.com where I am currently serving as an affiliate. For example, if you click on the computer and accessories tab you will be redirected directly to Amazon’s site on Computer Accessories. It all has been an experiment of sorts to test out the affiliate experience (to see if it really works) and at the same time give people a launching point to other technology sites. You will find the sidebars loaded with RSS feeds to some of the best tech sites out there; plus, if you click on the Bookmarks4Techs tab you will be taken to my collection of tech sites (currently over 600 sites and growing).

Also, in an effort to draw people to Bookmarks4Techs I am constantly trolling for tech bargains and new technologies that have surfaced on the market and any other tech related products that may be of interest to you. I especially use Amazon.com, TigerDirect, Circuit City, NewEgg, and CompUSA to locate products of interest.

I ask that you “pass the word”…
Bookmark and blogroll Bookmarks4Techs
 
so that it may grow in popularity.

Performed Some Site Maintenance – Blogroll Updated

January 22, 2011

After receiving some prompting and prodding I have cleaned up the blogroll somewhat so that the experience is more useful.  Any site that was on the blogroll that had not posted any articles within the past year have been taken off of the blogroll and archived (just in case they become active again).

To my readers out there, if you do not know what a blogroll is; it is a list of other blogs that a blogger (such as myself) might recommend by providing links to them (usually in a sidebar list).  You will find the blogroll here at What’s On My PC on the right side of the blog.

The blogs on my blogroll, which I am most proud to be associated with, are the following.  Take a few moments and hit these blogs. If you visit a site, leave them a comment that Rick from What’s On My PC  sent you. I promise you; you will not regret it.
