The Good Old Days
 
Check it out, MetalTabs in its earliest incarnation:

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://metaltabs.com/

I'm not sure if the first few pages archived are from Nomad's site, or the previous owner's, 'cause I see a lot of Nu-Metal there :p

No green, no nomad. At that point he had a site at www.atmetal.com, which looked a lot like this one.

Paddy 2007-04-29 08:51

Ahhh right. In that case:

Hehe.

That archive website is cool as fuck. Check it out and see what your favourite websites looked like in the beginning, some of the 1997 ones are a laugh:

http://www.archive.org/index.php (Use the "WayBackMachine")

Here's what the website itself looked like in '97:

http://web.archive.org/web/19971211...ww.archive.org/

Ahh the golden age of the internet, before Flash and other wankage was invented :bawling:

Cached webpages isn't all they have there. A very cool site for research and such; videos, documents, audio, etc.

That's a really interesting archive site! Thanks for the share.

That is pretty cool. I'd love to find forums so I could get back all those lost poems/lyrics I lost at tc and from my pc due to lightning. Seeing the old sites is neat.

I bought the metaltabs.com domain from Paul in April 2001. The site was re-opened in June 2001, before that it mainly had nu-metal tabs.

This look familiar? ;)

EDIT: FUCK, the stupid page listed that poem as having been written in 2001. It was actually your latest submission. Oh well :rolleyes:

Yeah i posted about this about a year ago.

The guy who had it before looks likea complete tool.

Guess what. I tried to look at tabs in the 2004-2005 time frame, and they work....

Paddy 2007-04-30 11:15

Yeah, it appears some of the old links within the cached pages bring you to their old destination (also a cached page) but it doesn't work all the time, my previous post is a good example; I had gone to the Poetry/Lyrical forum from 2001 and it brought me to the latest one, even though the link was still pertaining to the cached Internet Archive page. Weird.

Still cool though :p

No the amount of people that would be going through Archive.org would never "tip off" the MPA. Also metaltabs is completely not liable for what archive.org is doing.

Regardless archive.org has their own lawsuits and court battles they are currently facing due to the nature of their website.
