...It might even be possible to use this technique to build an even more complete snapshot by tracking the dead links on the page version you just posted, then checking to see if those links work on other archived dates in the Wayback Machine. Yes, it would be a lot of work, but if you're feeling motivated (or bored)...

I always have a lot to do in my life. I'm literally never bored. However now I'm not really feeing that motivated to do a lot of work for this.

I'll test and see if I can do a download of the site. Sometimes if you right click and save the main link, it saves files of all the pages, but that might take a lot of work re-setting it up.

Indeed. I am a completely self-taught web master (web novice really). The Library of Fanmade Documents is my current level of capability in web building, and it took many, many hours of work. Long ago I built web pages slightly more advanced (sites which also only survive through the Wayback Machine). If someone handed me functional HTML files of the main page and all the other pages (or even most), I could saved them all in the proper folder organization and upload them one-by-one to build a site which I'm guessing would be a little more complex than the Library. But I would still have to dig through the HTML coding on every single page and update all the URLs, which would still take a lot of time. Since this archive does not seem as appreciated as I thought it would be, I don't know that it would really be worth it to spend all the time needed to rebuild this properly.

Neat! I never saw the old site, so this will be an interesting read.
