How to look at old versions of blogs (8 posts)

    I wanted to see an archive of a blog that was last updated around August 2011. I want to see it, but it redirects me to a GoDaddy page. If I look it up on Google, the description shows a segment of the text that was there before the domain sold out. Is there any way I can see it somehow? Google doesn't provide a cached version of the website.

    EDIT: There is a version of this webpage, but it only has one post. http://toooucan.wordpress.com/ The one I'm talking about is toooucan.com

    Yes I did. It didn't work, sadly. See, it wasn't a very popular site, and it wasn't around for more than a year.

    You can view whatever Google still has cached, if that's any help.

    [edit] Sorry - I'm an idiot, and apparently I can't read today... I see you already tried that.

    Never mind. :-)

    Are you guys sure there isn't any other way? I want to know why the site shut down. It's kind of weird, really. Shippidge said it would be continuously updated and didn't have a video saying it shut down...

    Sites can shut down for many reasons. The owner might have been arrested for peddling pirated software or child pornography. We know what happened to Megaupload and other sites that were making millions by distributing pirated software and pornography.

    What exactly do you want from this site? Can you not recreate the content yourself?

    Um.... it's a video game blog. I don't think it will have pirated software/porn. That'd be awkward. O_O I just wanted to know why Shippidge has been unactive lately. It's probably in that site. I also wanted to know the progress of Episode 5 on Smashtasm.

    All in all, it's just pretty worthless stuff only I care about. :P

    Google cache - Text version with comments through September 18, 2011

    Some Cached entries for 3 days in August 2011. That's the best I could do. Maybe if you grab a soda and do some Google key word searches based on the article excerpts, you might be able to find another site or two that shared the article.

    Maybe the site got spammed to death!

    [edit] I expect to see you with your own WordPress site after this... Ha! :-)
