Wayback HTML Forms?

The Wayback Machine, which lets you enter a date and an URL, and see the page as it was back then, is a spectacular resource. But I'm having a problem...



You see, I'm trying to login to my E*Trade trading account, as of November 1998:



http://web.archive.org/web/19981201230708/www.etrade.com/cgi-bin/gx.cgi/AppLogic+Home



Knowing what I know now, there are a lot of trades I really, really need to make back then.



But the Wayback Machine won't let me log in!



Do you think I should send a problem report to the Internet Archive, E*Trade, or both?



I guess it's not urgent, as long as it's fixed EVENTUALLY,
I'll be able to perform the necessary trades.



;-)




If the Wayback Machine allowed interactive HTML-form access to websites in the past, what would you do?

First Post ^ infinity
I think I'd also go back and make myself the first post, on every Slashdot story, ever.
