A home inspection company recently engaged my services to rebuild a website that had been lost because the hosting company’s server crashed and there was no off-site backup. The president of the company lamented about the total loss of files and therefore all the web copy.

Within three hours I had a demo site up WITH the original logo and much of the web copy.

How was this possible if the company had no backup and I never had the files?

If you know the answer, good for you.

If you don’t know the answer, here it is: archive.org.

Keep this tidbit in the back of your mind. You never know when it might become useful.
