Long-time CFer needing to find new non-CF work? You may know more than you realize

Hey CFers: if you're thinking of getting (or are being forced) out of CF, and feel you can't find work, do you feel stuck? You probably know a lot more in terms of marketable skills than you may think.

This is a follow-up to my last post, Looking for CF people, or CF work? What can you do?.

In that one, I focused mostly on helping someone who WANTS to stay in CF, or as important, those who HAVE WORK TO OFFER in CF but have a hard time finding people.

Now this is for someone on the other side of the fence, who is now out of work in CF (by choice or circumstance) and needing to find work OUTSIDE of CF, and can't wait to develop new skills.

Looking for CF people, or CF work? What can you do?

I'm often asked by clients or folks in the community about whether I know anyone who could do some CF development work (or how they can find someone), or whether I know of any jobs/gigs available (or how they can find them).

I do have a pretty standard answer, and it's not what most would expect to hear.

Recordings for nearly a dozen recent FusionReactor webinars I've done

I've been doing a series of one-hour webinars about FusionReactor over the past several months. They've covered nearly a dozen different topics (all with live demos), with more to come, including one just last week, "Making the Most of FusionReactor's Logs".

Easily finding cached/old versions of a site/page when it's down or gone

Note: This blog post is from 2017. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
Have you ever had a web site "go dark" on you? or found that a given page on a site somehow disappeared? Maybe it's only temporary (there may even be a "we're down" message, though the site or server may just fail to respond at all), or maybe the failure of the page or site will be permanent.

The good news is that there are at least two easy ways that you may well still be able to see that content you may be missing:

  • the Google cache (to at least see the last version which Google may have cached)
  • the internet archive "wayback machine", which often lets you see YEARS back in the history of a page or entire site, including one that may be long-gone.
  • and still another couple of options

TLDR;

Try putting either cache: or web.archive.org/ in front of the URL of whatever page you're trying to visit, as in:

http://web.archive.org/https://www.carehart.org/index.cfm

to perhaps see years of archived versions of a page/site.

Or to see any Google snapshot of the most recent cached version of a page, use this in a Google search,

cache:https://www.carehart.org/index.cfm

Either may or may not work, for various reasons I explain below. And note that this works for domain names or individual web page URLs. You may find that it also works with or without the protocol (http:// or https://), but try using it the other way if one does not work.

For much more, read on, as I share tips (and gotchas) on using both tools.
