More fun with the Wayback Machine

Well, I'm sure everyone remembers this entry about the evolution of LiveJournal's look. What no one mentioned back then is the Wayback Machine's ability to uncover the previous states of personal journals (as long as the owner allows robots to crawl their pages, that is).

Some of my favorites include this community and, of course, Brad's own journals. Try it on your friends to dig up potentially embarrassing ancient layouts. Blackmail is nifty!
