Tools

If you want to see online promotional materials that are no longer available, a useful site can be found at http://www.archive.org
e.g. this is what HBO's Sopranos site looked like back in April of 1999...
http://web.archive.org/web/20000815070449/www.hbo.com/sopranos/

The following site allows you to get "snapshots" of entire websites, download embedded video/documents etc - all of which are catalogued by the date you visited and accessible through one simple user interface. It's a particularly handy tool if you're trying to document and organise online promotional material
