Internet Archives and Way back machines in desperate times One of the most overlooked tools for circumventing blocked content is with the use of an internet archive. Every piece of content and every website published on the world wide web is catalogued in some way.

This way of cracking into restricted content can be useful if there is no other way and you have explored every option possible.
