@MagicLoogies asked for how I have been pulling up data from FW. Here’s my method:
Let’s say I want to find a crown vic thread. I will try to find the most obscure thing I remember from the thread and search for that. Or I might use a very specific description of the topic.
Search on Bing and restrict the search to www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance.
“bubble king site:www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance” is the search string.
Restrict the time to show topics before a certain date.
For the thread I’m looking for right click the title and select “copy link location”
Go to www.archive.org and paste the thread into the wayback machine at the top of the page.
Find a date that has a cached copy and click on that date, the page will display.
Note: Archive.org is slow.
