Blast from the past - old low power radio web sites

Backing up our computer files is a nightmare and keeping track of all that digital stuff is even worse. Most of us consign ourselves to at least shoveling buckets of bits into a byte bin and then we hope to heaven we'll be able to bounce back from what ever fells us. What on Earth does this have to do with low power radio?
     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?
     And now, please to be enjoying some of my favorites from the world wide web, circa 1999
