Trying to Locate Old Web Page

I know this is not really on-topic, but I'm hoping someone can help
me.

In the late 1990s, I was a subscriber to Pacific Bell Internet
(PBI). Originally hosting my Web pages at Geocities because PBI did
not initially host subscriber Web page, I moved them to PBI by
1998. Later, I changed ISPs and moved my pages to VCNet, which was
then bought by ISWest (my present ISP).

I am trying to locate some of my old Web pages in the Internet
Archive (at <URL:http://www.archive.org/>. For this, I need the
complete URLs at PBI, but I can't remember them.

I know the URL for my home page at PBI ended either
/rossde/index.html or /rossde/home.html. But I can't remember the
domain at PBI for subscriber Web pages or whether there was a
directory above the rossde.

Can anyone help me?

I typed "Pacific Bell Internet" in a Google search and got several hits. if
you can get the format of the URL, could you just add the last part from
memory?

HTH,

Doug.

Thanks. You reminded me of the Google Groups search. I searched a
newsgroup to which I know I was posting during that time. I always
put my Web site's URL in my signature line (as I do now). GOT
IT!! I even got my Geocities URL, too.

Thanks again.
