Well, I was digging through a bit bucket the other day and found a heap of low low power radio related links from the turn of the century - the current century, that is. With the help of the Internet Archive, I am able to give you a peek into those thrilling days of yesteryear, the world of low power radio at 640 X 480 in 256 dazzling colors.
Here you will find broken links, missing images, slow loading and other kinks galore but after all, time travel is hardly perfect! Speaking of time travel, you can use the widget at the top of each archive screen to move among the archived versions of each site - pretty cool, huh?
