Accessing AUGI via the Google Cache

It seems the AUGI forum data situation is still up in the air - will all that user generated content ever become available again?

In the meantime *some* of the AUGI data can be accessed using the Google Cache.  For instance, if you want to find the Google Cache of an old AUGI page:
  1. Open Google.
  2. Get the old address of the AUGI page ( for example http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=71280&page=5 )
  3. Paste the address into Google and Search.
  4. When the result comes up, click on the 'Cached' link.  The actual link will look something like http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCUQIDAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwebcache.googleusercontent.com%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dcache%3A1yS0KRA-4woJ%3Aforums.augi.com%2Fshowthread.php%253Ft%253D71280%2Bgetlevel%2Brevit%26cd%3D1%26hl%3Den%26ct%3Dclnk%26gl%3Dau%26client%3Dfirefox-a&rct=j&q=getlevel%20revit&ei=AG4BTZStF8HqrAfPqv2QDw&usg=AFQjCNEMUW1ouZzNr6ZVj2py2M6ZanqXig&sig2=BcJo4z9C6M5iCTRATFY00A&cad=rja

This won't last forever...


  1. Nice tip Luke!! Some use this method also for ExpertsExchange as well...
