Snapple Real Facts

UPDATE 07/15/2003: I've put the Snapple Real Fact Page back up, even though I am no longer running a wiki. I'll start adding to my drinking list as well.

Where did the list of Snapple Real Facts go, you are asking? Well here's the answer:

On the previous Wiki I had a list of the caps from the Snapple bottles that I had been drinking, in the order I saw them. Some people added a full list of the caps, which was nice of them. But then some other morons came along and erased my list. For some reason the WikkiTikiTavi that I was running didn't save backups of my original pages, only the altered ones. So my list is lost (unless archived deep inside Google somewhere).

I've now switch Wiki software to one that saves all the changes, so if things get trashed I can get back to a previously good page.

And thanks to the wonders of Google's Cache I now have my old list back! Another interesting fact is that this website appears above Snapple's own website. (07/15/2003, it hasn't been reindexed by google yet)
