Howdy! It's Billeh in Portland. Quick question:

I was writing up a quick shoutout to the Great Orange Satan on its 16th blogiversary (this Saturday), and noticed that links to the earliest posts are broken. Here's an example: Markos's first post from 2002: http://www.dailykos.net/archives/000001.html

Has the archives been moved? I hope those early posts aren't lost to history. Thanks and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

    Hi, Bill --

    Nice idea! I've asked back stage but haven't gotten any results yet. Wanted you to know we're still investigating & hope to have something for you tomorrow.
    Hard to believe it's been 16 years.

    Hey Billeh! I have SUCCESS to report, though it's a bit indirect.

    First, try this link via the Wayback Machine. https://web.archive.org/web/20021115215215/http://www.dailykos.com:...
    You can find a bunch of old Daily Kos posts by noodling around there.

    Second, I've just uploaded a photo to the site Image Library of a hard copy of the first post, which is on display at HQ. Look for images uploaded by Daily Kos Staff. :) This one in particular is image #545981.

    I look forward to reading your post! Happy anniversary to everyone at the GOS, starting with kos himself.
