Indeed. And something that ought to be memed but isn't.

The internet archive has old versions of much of the web cached, as well as a growing collection of public domain music, movies, and books. We've considered tying it into Memestreams so that when you are reading an article that was memed you can either go to the URL today, or you can go to the internet archive's cache at the time it was memed.

If you haven't checked this site out, you certainly should.

Wow! I can't believe I've never memed it! I use it frequently.

My favorite area is the "audio" link in the upper navbar. Then follow the link to "Live Music Archive"

There are free *LEGAL* downloads of live shows by 311, Camper Van Beethoven, Gin Blossoms, Local H, Ekoostik Hookah, and many other bands.

Please try the Hot Buttered Rum String Band - they are a fun bluegrass band who plays on the west coast. Their Jan 04 show from the Bean Scene is especially good.

Here are some very strange audio files:
The Conet Project - Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations

VERY cool resource. I can type in any URL, see how it's changed over time, and retrieve old URLs that have since gone offline if I want to mirror them.

Try typing into it, and see the early homepage. :)
