My thanks to Trina is Artsy Fartsy! As many of you may know, a couple of years ago my previous blog host unexpectedly closed causing ART FOR HOUSEWIVES to lose 8 years worth of research. Trina recently wrote to tell me that much of my blog’s old material can be found via WAY BACK MACHINE. Of course, many fotos are missing and the layout is out of sinc but most links are still there.

The WAY BACK MACHINE is part of The Internet Archive. The Archive “is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format.”
Check out “Save Page Now” so that you can “capture a web page as it appears now for use as a trusted citation in the future.”

Also of interest is the OPEN LIBRARY: “Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published.”

The Internet Archives, even tho’ it was unknown to me, it is an important resource. In fact, as they point out “the Internet Archive points out, the Wayback Machine’s database is queried over 1,000 times every second by over 500,000 people a day, making Archive.org the 250th most popular site on the Web.”

I’m so glad that I could be of assistance!! Artists should help each other when we can. Thank you for the mention too, that really made my day. I truly admire your blog, and all the amazing ideas and projects you spent so much time compiling! 🙂
Mille grazie once again Trina!
I have many of your webpages saved from 2003 to 2009. If you would like me to send you a zip file of them just drop me a note.
Thanks Stark, that would be great!
