Windows 7: The Internet Archives

The Internet Archives

I've been browsing the Archive's for a few years now,primarily and almost totally their old (out of copyright) films and t.v. shows. Want to see old Buster Keaton? Fatty Arbuckle? The ORIGINAL Fast and Furious (50's)? Pre-code Hollywood? Like Film Noire? This is the place! Out of print and rare books? Yep, they have them too. Every Grateful Dead concert ever (it seems ) plus old radio shows? (think Colgate hour etc.) Some of the funniest cartoons ever? (Caution, most but not all of the cartoons were "retired" and let lapse into the public domain because of racist stereotypes, but think Tex Avery, Walter Lantz). Did you know Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble shilled for Camel cigarettes? You could literally spend years in this place just browsing! Anyway, as much as I've been here over the years, and they add new things constantly, I've recently "discovered" their software collection. Feel like some really retro gaming? They have you covered! Want to see what an old (2004) Tucows mirror site had? Linux distros from the beginning of open source, old manuals and computer magazines are just some of the wonders here. All downloadable and totally free! If you have an interest in history, films, T.V., music and other things too numerous to mention I wholeheartedly recommend this place. You won't be sorry you went

You're very welcome. Love the site and try to promote whenever I can. Many hours of fun and ....... "mystery" there. When you're very bored , or just curious its the place to be. Spent hours listening to some old ham radio code from the Eastern Bloc , most probably spy codes , from the 50's early 60's , just eerie.

Wow, didn't know there was THAT much stuff in there. Thought it was mostly old websites. Thank you for the info, I have to visit that site sometime. I did read online that it has some petabyte(s) (?) of data, I still didn't think what kind of content there is.

Old websites are but a tiny fraction of what's available in this unique site. A treasure for sure and as I mentioned, been browsing it for years now and STILL finding new things! They even host new content, as long as its open source and/or non-copywritten. Enjoy!
