Archive

We finally tracked down the Whim archives!

Check out Bob Stepno’s blog to locate by season: http://stepno.wordpress.com/old-whims/

The archives are coming to this Web site soon; please be patient while we transfer them.

Inspired by a student’s request in January 2010, this is a missing-links page for early years of Radford University’s Whim Internet Magazine. The list and images are mostly from archive.org’s copy of a now-defunct index at the magazine’s old address, kept from 2001 to 2005.

Note to former Whim staff members and other archive-searchers: If Radford’s own servers no longer have a copy of a page, you may be able to find it at archive.org with some sleuthing. At various times, Radford’s Web server has been addressable as “www.cs.runet.edu” or “www.runet.edu” or “www.radford.edu” — and for some reason archive.org copies of the pages for a given date may show up at one version of the address, but not others. For example, compare the lists of captured pages at these addresses:

The first two include the same final page from 2005, but in other years the page was captured on different dates using different addresses. Since this page is static list, there shouldn’t be much difference between versions, but — moral of the story — if you are searching for story pages, try variations on RU server addresses before giving up.

Original archive editor’s note: “Archived articles and graphics may not coordinate with the original designs and layouts.”

(Side note… or “sighed” note: For six years the intro paragraph of the archive page misspelled the word “separate,” saying archived pages would appear in a “seperate browser window.” Please abandon that tradition! While editing this page in July 2010, I was relieved to see that I’d spelled it correctly the first time, but mistakes do happen to even the best editors.)
