for decades.

octor Who's Tardis,
Doc's DeLorean and
Heinlein's "The Door
Into Summer" all used time
travel to great, dramatic-but
fictional-advantage.
Mainframe's only time travel
is entering/leaving daylight
saving time and coping with
occasional disruptive leap
seconds. Mainframers seeking
the vanished glories of yesteryear
or craving vanished Web pages
to settle arcane arguments or

manage long-obsolete equipment
need only conjure up the
Internet Archive Wayback
Machine (archive.org/web).
Using this website, I recently
found an article I'd written
about 10 years ago for aarp.org.
Searching was simple: Entering
the domain yielded a timeline
from 1996 to today, illustrating
density of 4,282 saved Web
pages. Iterative guesses regarding
publication date gave me an
index page linking the article.

The IBM Archives features resources and a timeline of the
company: ibm.com/ibm/history

More to the point for mainframers, IBM.com was saved 7,720
times in the same timespan. The
first snapshot appears to be a barebones website dated Oct. 22, 1996,
including the intriguing but dated
exhortation, "Carpe Intranetum:
Seize the Power of Intranets."
Archive.org's comprehensive
FAQ describes the organization
behind it, how it's supported,
search techniques and more
(archive.org/about/faqs.php).
Questions include: Do you collect
all the sites on the Web? (No); Do
you archive email? Chat? (No);
Where does the name come from?
("The Rocky and Bullwinkle"
show). The Wayback Machine
contains about 13 PB of data and
is growing rapidly. This eclipses
the amount of text contained in the
world's largest libraries, including
the Library of Congress.
Another mind-boggling IBM documentation resource is Bitsavers
(textfiles.com/bitsavers/pdf/ibm),
which lists device types from 1130
to 8000, and various products and
technology. One can easily spend
time revisiting products from the
past. Other companies' documents are also available, and the
website's PDF document format is
listed (textfiles.com/bitsavers).
The Computer History Museum
maintains an eclectic assortment of
IBM publications (bit.ly/1ZcnorK).
Vendor sites naturally mostly focus
on current product generations,
but sometimes searches yield
past nuggets.
Whether you're a recent industry
recruit curious about earlier times
or a veteran refreshing past career
memories, a wealth of insight or
nostalgia awaits.
