Everything Else » I can't log-in to see the library on the mirror site.

I know that the Nerdkit library is down so I went to the wayback machine internet archive Website. I could choose from a variety of dates but I chose sometime in 2012 which is after I joined Nerdkit but before the library went down. I saw most of the content in the Website for that date. I know that I need to log in to see the library so I tried and when I hit enter, I can't log in. I notice that on the upper right corner it says the date. I notice that when I click on the "members" tab to try to log in, the date turns back to April 21 2010. Since I wasn't a member back then, I can't get in to the "members" section. That means that I can't log in which means that I can't view the library. Does anybody else have the same problem.

You will not have to log on at all when you are attempting to find archived web pages using wayback machine. It will not mater if or when you became a Nerdkits member. I have found that the Nerdkits library pages that I can find on wayback machine are often very incomplete and as a result I get either

“ Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived. Want to search for all archived pages under http://www.nerdkits.com/library/ ?”

Or often

“Bummer.

The machine that serves this file is down. We're working on it.

The machine that serves this file is down. We're working on it.

Would you like to try the next date?”

I have found that these messages are very common when I attempt to view a specific Nerdkits library pages. Occasionally changing the date of the achieve may result in success but many pages just do not seam to be available at all.

Depending on what page and what date you are looking for it is posible you may still locate it by using the wayback archives and searching http://www.nerdkits.com/library/ .

Thank you. I found it. The reason why I had the problem was because I went to the Wayback Machine Website and entered http://www.nerdkits.com/ which took me to the Nerdkit Website. I then had to click on the "Members" tab to log in and when I tried to log-in, it didn't accept my password. However, when I went to the Wayback Machine Website and entered http://www.nerdkits.com/library/, it took me directly to the library.

Your welcome

If I recall correctly, I believe it was Ralph that originally posted how to find the Nerdkits.com/library archives on the wayback machine. It would be him that deserves the thanks for that information.
