OK, I did some research and for those of you who want to retrieve/read/salvage older (even as far back as 1996) articles you might be in luck.
Go to http://archive.org and in the "The Wayback Machine" tab enter www.iranian.com. This will take you to a page where "snapshots" of the web site in interest are marked on a calendar. You choose a year/date on that calendar and then it will take you to Iranain.com front page as it was on that date.
I managed to save a few articles of mine (and others) using the "who's who" tab.
Good luck and I hope this helps!
