The Wayback Machine’s Save Page Now is New and Improved #Citations #History @InternetArchive
The Internet Archive has released a great new feature! Pages can now be saved in snapshot form which is great for referencing things or creating citations.
Save Page Now (SPN) just got a major upgrade as a result of a total code rewrite, adding a slew of new and awesome features, with more on the way.
When users are logged in with their free Archive.org account, SPN-generated archives can be saved to that user’s “My web archive” public gallery of archived pages.
Have you ever wanted to archive all the web pages linked from an email message? Well, you are in luck because now you can forward that email to “[email protected]” and after a few minutes you will get an email back filled with Wayback Machine playback URLs.
URLs embedded in a web-based PDF file, RSS feed, or JSON file can be archived. The new SPN will parse those files and archive all the URLs they contain. To use this feature, simply submit PDF/RSS or JSON URLs to SPN, and don’t forget to select the “capture outlinks” checkbox.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
