Just spent an hour on the Wayback Machine. Visited HPCF… I sure miss the old days…

Me too. Seeing the tumble weed roll through depresses me every day.

The big disappointment for me has always been what hasn't been archived, including downloadable files.

You mean forum attachments or something else?

How about all the software that we only have in demo format and cannot be obtained anywhere.

No, I meant from pages archived in the Wayback Machine (in general, from other sites).

Also yes. It's like a form of survivors guilt.

Perhaps we should compile a WBM links resource of all the great content we've lost?

I was a young teen in the late 90's when handhelds were all the rage and remember vividly standing in Office Depot looking at the isle of handhelds that you could try thinking how cool they were. That interest still runs strong today, both for old and new handhelds. And thanks to Rich, who I liken to a drug dealer, has supplied me throughout the years with (quite) a few. I'm glad they're making a resurgence.

I remember I first got my Sigmarion 1. The STN screen made me think twice to watch videos on it, but I ran a web server in my house with CEHTTP.

I think I ran a smtp server on it too, from the same author as CEHTTP. I don't quite remember seeing new condition Handheld PC in Japan. There were lots of used ones circa 2004-2005 in used electronics store and Yahoo Japan Auction.

Well, retro seems to be all the rage now. Maybe just a matter of time... I see Psion 5mx and Jornada 720/728 machines are still in high demand on eBay.
