Well, it's now showing the main page, which is progress :) Unfortunately, I still can't seem to get it to go to one of the particular pages I was trying to obtain - http://members.fortunecity.com/hylia64/hll.htm

Though I'm guessing that may have not gotten crawled through at the time? Would be a shame since I'm trying to remember something that we had on that particular page (it was a silly ongoing story thing we did, and there are certain details I'm trying to recall for nostalgia sake), but it is what it is if it didn't get picked up before FortuneCity deleted everything :/

I'm getting the following message:
"Hrm.

Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived.

Want to search for all archived pages under http://members.fortunecity.com/hylia64/ ?"


When I click on the link, it gives me the same message, but tries to send me to members.fortunecity.com instead :/

(on the plus side, I did find an old site of mine that's unrelated to this one, so that was kind of neat... and embarrassing... :) )

Hello! If you go to the user lookup page and enter your username (hylia64), you find that it was archived. You then get a link to the WARC.gz, which probably is of little use to you. To download it as a .zip file instead, go here. I downloaded the zip and extracted it, but unfortunately hll.htm was not saved. Only the home page seems to be saved. Sorry. http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://members.fortunecity.com/hylia64* http://web.archive.org/web/20120314020751/http://members.fortunecity.com/hylia64/ I also checked the archive at fortunecity.ws: http://hylia64.fortunecity.ws/ It was not there either. Most likely the reason hll.htm was not archived was because there were no incoming links to the page. (This is necessary for a successful crawl.) On the bright side, at least something was saved.
