The girls’ swim team’s website crashed and burned hard last week. It’s a long song and dance, but basically the web host dumped it, couldn’t retrieve the archives, yada, yada, yada…the club president eventually threatened war or something similar (it was his baby and he’d spent all summer working on it), after which the web host eventually got it back online.
In the meantime though, there was some frantic scrambling to save what we could from the archives. After it became apparent that we wouldn’t need to, I took a little trip down my own memory lane and visited the archives of Meretta Pater dot com via The Internet Archive WayBack Machine.
Wow! Wasn’t that a whole other life, a whole other lifetime ago! It made me just nostalgic enough to want to bring over a bunch of posts that I didn’t transfer to my wordpress blog when I closed that chapter of my life.
For those of you that just show up and read the current stuff here, you won’t notice the extra infusion in the archives. For those of you who subscribe though, you will notice that over the next while there will be random posts popping up from 2006-2009.
Bear with me if you’ve read them before! At the very least, they might provide a measuring stick with which you can walk down your own memory lane. At the very most, I hope they provide some enjoyment. 🙂
