Back In Time - Rest In Peace

A long time ago, I stumbled across an Atari-related website named Back In Time.  Don't bother clicking on that link because that site isn't there anymore.  It stopped being updated quite a while back, then the site was just a generic placeholder, and now it's something else entirely.  I'm not sure the current site is legitimate.  I know it didn't appear until 2010, but it has "archives" going back to 2009 and even 2008.

Back In Time was the brainchild of long-time Atari enthusiast Mike Stulir.  Mike posted reviews and interviews and other interesting things.  For years, Back In Time was in my Atari bookmarks section.  Once a week or so, I'd pull up all the sites in that section to check for Atari news to add to my own site.  Back in those days when search engines and automatic article retrieval and similar services just didn't exist, it was up to the individual Atari fan to find and monitor sites.  Back In Time was one of the sites I monitored.  Many an interesting news tidbit came to Cheek.Org's Atari Stuff from Back In Time.

Anyway, to get a taste of what things used to be like, check out classic Back In Time from the web archive.  And if anybody has a current URL for Back In Time or a current email address for Mike Stulir, please let me know.
