FA/SML Old Fansites and Webpages

Postby snaps » Mon Sep 12, 2011 5:26 pm

Over the past month I have been researching old FA/SML websites. There are only two (OEB’s and glampops) which are currently maintained. Others are mostly on dead webspace and can’t be found directly. I have located over two dozen. Some are very professionally designed and quite comprehensive, while others are a few pages put up by amfans. Sadly, Bex’s own site, has disappeared (like one or two others) for good.

The good news is that most (but certainly not all) have retained their content. The bad news is that many of the photolinks have disappeared. I suspect this had to do with the coding, i.e. like I do on here, it links to another site. If that site isn’t maintained, the links disappear. Many others have broken links to other sites which have, of course, gone down, but there is still plenty of material (like articles) to view. Some of the pictures posted are larger versions and/or better copies than versions I have seen on here.

I’ll use this thread to post one every day or so, over the next few weeks. I have created an excel file to classify them and group them according to date of origin. If this isn’t stated clearly, I go by the first ‘crawling’ date. This is the general classification I have used.

The Notes on Content is just the main menu etc. Many sites have sub-menus as well. I’ll start off in reverse order. This is the earliest one I can find.

My old Rebecka website is still up, but it hasn't been updated in years.

I'm wondering if that went on to become "Peter's Fucking Sida". http://hem.passagen.se/jaymz81/Fucking/index1.htm

Haven't had a chance to look in detail yet but sounds promising.
Excellent stuff Snaps. *:)*

No. Peter Engman's site didn't go online until 1999, and there were others there ahead like ''Big Mac'' and Peter Knochenhauer, as well as some Norwegian sites. I'll post all the details in due course. For the moment this is "Peter's Fucking Sida" which is pretty much intact, with some loss of detail. He was the one who had his copy of the FA book signed by Bex and Lex.

I'm afraid I need a tutorial on The Wayback Machine Snapsie.
Try as I might my tiny feeble brain can't quite get the gist of it. :T

How do you get from finding the site to finding the pics?



So much potential.
So little intellect. :( :oops:

I know the feeling. Half the time I get stuck on the wayback page.

Which could just be my increasingly knackered computer at work, I grant you. :roll:

I really don’t understand what the difficulty is :roll:

1) Simply right click on the addy, and open in a new window. :idea:

http://web.archive.org/web/20001001133059/http://hem.passagen.se/jaymz81/Fucking/index1.htm

2) This opens out somethings like this …. :shock:

Internet Archive's Wayback Machine

Welcome to Wayback.
Loading...
http://hem.passagen.se/jaymz81/Fucking/index1.htm
as close to the date:
13:30:59 Oct 1, 2000
as is available..

Impatient?

The Wayback Machine is an initiative of the Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Other projects include Open Library, nasaimages.org & archive-it.org. Your use of the Wayback Machine is subject to the Internet Archive's Terms of Use.

3) Then wait. :Z
4) Or else click on the word: Impatient? [because you are :Y ]
5) This opens out the archived site. :wink:
6) [Optional] You can click to close the Wayback box if you wish. :?
7) On Peter’s Fucking Sida, for example got to the menu in the left hand bar and
8) Click on the word ‘Bilder’ (i.e. pictures) This opens out sample thumbnails and the following sub-menu. 8)

Här är min samling med en himla massa bilder!

Här har jag samlat ihop en himla massa små-bilder från:
Bilder jag fått av Klubba
Sen kväll med Luuk
Trailer till filmen
Bilder från filmen

Klicka på en bild eller en länk för att få den i riktig storlek!
Bild på Mathias Rust
Snygg bild på Rebecca!
Alexandra vid sminkbordet
Stor bild på Alex och Rebecca 1
Stor bild på Alex och Rebecca 2
Stor bild på Alex och Rebecca 3
Bild på Rebecca
Rebecca med i "Sherdil"


9) But some of the thumbnails you can click on directly :idea: and it will open out a full size version of the photo. E.g like the one of Bex doing embroidery *:)*
10) which you can save as a jpeg. If you wish. :)P

11) Others like the one of Bex sitting at the table haven’t been archived *:|* So it comes up with a message like this when you click on:

Internet Archive's Wayback Machine

LatestShow All
Hrm.
Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived. It doesn't seem to be available on the live web, either.
Want to search for all archived pages under http://hem1.passagen.se/chatte81/ ?

12) Then click on the link. :T This will take you to a list headed something like this:

Internet Archive's Wayback Machine

Go Wayback!
33 URLs have been captured for this domain.
Filter results (i.e. '.txt'):
Processing...

URL ↑ From To Captures Duplicates Uniques
hem1.passagen.se/chatte81/018rebeccaliten.jpg Nov 28, 2005 Nov 28, 2005 1 0 1

Etc etc

13) From there its pot luck. :o If the original author has been smart the URL title will give you a clue as to content. Remember though that the saved titles are likely to be in the language of the author :T So, for example http://hem1.passagen.se/chatte81/alexprat.jpg isn’t a pic of Alex behaving like a prat :roll: it means ‘prat’ in Swedish as in ‘talk’ :) Sometimes the picture will open up directly for you. *:)* Othertimes it will come up with a message like: *:|*

http://hem1.passagen.se/chatte81/bild.jpg has been crawled 2 times going all the way back to March 8, 2004.
A crawl can be a duplicate of the last one. It happens about 25% of the time across 420,000,000 websites. FAQ

14) Scroll down the calendar :T and you will see one of the dates has a light blue circle round it.
15) Hover your mouse over it and it will turn dark blue and come up with a reference. :wink:
16) Click on it. E.g. November 28th 2005.

If you are in luck it will open up the pic for you. :twisted: If it doesn’t, it may be worth going back and .... :evil:

17) clicking on the earlier date, as the image may have been deleted between ‘crawls’ by the search engines. :r

Sadly in this case, the photo of Bex at the table hasn’t been archived :| so there isn’t much you can do about it :( but there are lots of other pics dating from the book-signing period. :mrgreen: It just requires oodles of patience and detective work. :T

You could always go back to the original list on Peter’s bilder page: :?:

18) Click on Bilder jag fått av Klubba opens a new subpage :!:

Nya bilder från Klubba!

Which has 18 further references you can click on. :r Some, (most in this case) will open out directly *:)* others (like number 2) will take you back into the Wayback machine to try to hunt down from a list, as above. :T :T OK you may not get much further than TN’s at this point but check out the list ‘stor’ for example means ‘big’ as in larger images. :idea: For this example, Peter has linked directly to ‘Big Macs’ website, which as it not functional/ archived only can’t display directly. :T

19) It will then take you to ‘Big Macs’ archive of canit.se/bigmac on Wayback and you can start the process all over again. [12-17] :r :T

Guaranteed, hours of endless fun! :Z Just consider yourself as like an explorer, you may be the first person to have set eyes on a rare pic in years. *:|*

20) Alternatively, you can get a life instead. :lol: :W

OK now we have got all that (above instructions), here’s the featured website for the day. As we are on the subject of ‘Big Mac’, he had the only site which claims to be ‘the official homepage’ for Bex, as he reckons to be a friend of hers. Big Mac is less a reference to his eating habits as to his work with Apple computers (hence, I guess, his connection to Bex). Some items like the guest Book and Messagae Board are more difficult to trace.
