Looking for Long, Lost Website

I know that there are much more internet/tech savvy people out there than myself. And its you that I'm appealing to.

I used to have a website called Crying Out Loud. There were two manifestations of this website: One was hosted on Geocities and the other on the Univ. of Waterloo servers. I am hoping to find an archive version of this site out of personal and blogging interest. Is there anyone that can help me?

I have tried to use the Wayback Machine and can't seem to get anywhere. Not sure why that it is, though it's likely me not knowing enough about how to use it. Anyway here are some details.

Title of the site was called Crying Out Loud, the homepage had a picture of Edvard Munch's The Scream. It was originally hosted by Geocities (I believe in the Athens neighbourhood, though this could be wrong) between the years 1996 and 2000, and there was incarnation of it on the arts.uwaterloo.ca server between 1999 and 2002. There were several pages connected to the database of it that were essay-like or blog-like. The titles for some of these were 'history of lies', 'human animal', and 'creative destruction'.

Any assistance would be really appreciated.

I gave it a shot but I think you need the URL. Perhaps find the URL on a page that linked to it, then search the right URL.
