TweakTown over the Years - a look at our designs from 1999 to 2011

A trip down memory lane!

By Cameron Wilmot | Jul 4, 2011 10:49 am CDT

How long have you been reading TweakTown? Can you remember what it looked like when you first started reading? If you can, I guess you are one of the lucky folks who have a photographic memory.

We decided to present a look at TweakTown over the years in the form of a video with screenshots of what the site looked like about every six months or so from 1999 to the present day. It gives us a look at where we have been and where we are presently. It proved to be quite an emotional video for some of the long term TweakTown staff and contributors.

How did we do it? We used a service by Archive.org called "Way Back Machine" which captures websites into its cache system every now and again and has been doing so for a long time - over 12 years we can confirm. Some of the screenshots are not perfect with dead images and such, but it does give you a good look and our designs over our time on the big bad Internet.
