Hugging a cat because this has been A Day.

Ok, done for the day and guessing I'm at approx 500 books pulled. This included:

▪️ a 15-volume set on IBM PCs in the library
▪️20-year-old accreditation manual
▪️ library automation instructions from the '70s and '80s
▪️ 202+ Software Packages To Use in Your Library (1992)
▪️ COBOL and Pascal programming guides for librarians

AHA. I think I have figured this out.

curl web.archive.org/cdx/search/cdx{URL HERE} | cut -d " " -f 2 > dates.txt

gets a list of dates for the captures Wayback has. Those can then be turned into Wayback URLs to feed into wget.

Question. Is there an automated tool that pulls historical crawls of a single page (or, lemme dream here, a whole website) from the Wayback Machine?

Nothing, just getting ahead of standard Elsevier tactics on birbsite in hopes others will learn their basic falsity, how's your Friday?

It has been A Day. Cute animal pix respectfully requested.

Funny how things come back around, though. Douglas Adams's digital-watch jokes were funny, then incomprehensible, and now they're funny again because of the Apple Watch.

Thursday.

Never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Reading a friend's mentions on birbsite and ending up in a "yeah, yeah, that is totally why I muted that dude" place about one dude in them.

On Mokum, under a cat-in-a-box picture, the following comment chain:

Boxes are for cats.
Each cat its box.
Each box its cat.
Save the box for the cat.
The cat in the box is a growing organism.

We are cat-loving library nerds, YES WE ARE.
