Random Oddments

Just a quick post to show you two things that make be seen as a little bit geeky (!), but I think are quite fun:
1) Type this script into the address bar while on any website:
javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0
and you can edit text, replace pictures and move things around. These changes can only be seen by you of course :-)

2) The Wayback Machine - Simply type in a website and click 'Take Me Back'. A list of dates will appear and if you click on one, you will be taken to see what that website looked like on that particular date!

I found news sites, plus the ITV and BBC websites the most interesting, as you can see the current events and news for that date - I even found out 'spoilers' for Coronation Street, which brought back some memories!

It's interesting to see how well-established websites looked when the internet was just taking off, because they look rather amateur hehe

Hope you have fun!
