WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Retronaut

You’ve probably only really got a couple of days to still be banging on about last year before people expect you to get on with 2013, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go back a bit further before that happens.

While you’re in a retrospective mood (or not) take a look at retronaut.com, which bills itself as your “passport” to the past.

This is a visual treat for nostalgic types, and it’s proved to be a scary trip down memory lane for many of us ‘Linters, as the screams of, “There’s no way that was 20 year ago!” have been ringing out with startling regularity.

Retronaut will also appeal to fans of social history, as this eclectic timeline drifts through the ages with an expert eye for the memorable image and the forgotten trends.

You really can get lost in time here and we reckon it’s a great place to spend a few minutes before the hurly burly of the new year proper kicks off next week.

If you have a useful, funny, or just plain weird website that you want to tell us about, drop us a line using our feedback form.
