Going Wayback With Jack — See Our Former Websites! [PICTURES]
We found a thing.
Digging around on the interwebs, we recently came across the Wayback Machine. It’s essentially a time machine for websites that allows you to go back to all of your design mistakes and regrets. Fun, right?
So we thought we’d go back and show you what 929JackFM.com has looked like in years past. Because we’re told it’s mature or something to be able to laugh at yourself.

We were kind enough back in the beginning to let you choose your own adventure. You could either go to our HTML website or…
…you could go to the interactive flash version, which is easily the most magical/horrifyingly embarrassing place on Earth!
If you click around on the objects, you can find your way around the site. The blocked-off door leads you to Friends of Jack; the mop and bucket leads you to employment opportunities; and the lava lamp – of course – leads to Cool Links. Because what was cooler in 2005 than a lava lamp and our links?
This layout unfortunately stayed the same for a few years.
Here are some of the rest:

We’re going to guess (or at least we hope) that Wayback just doesn’t want to load everything properly, but either way, we apologize.

This or something similar was the layout from late 2008 until early 2011.

Getting closer! This eventually morphed into what we have today. No more messy links — and, sorry, but no more interactive flash cartoons. Bummer.
