... my own website at http://stilgherrian.com is neither a .au domain
nor hosted in Australia, but IS being archived in PANDORA, with a
snapshot taken each January for the last couple or years.
But, chucking in another issue, there's things "in" my website which I
consider to b part of "my" content but which are embedded from other
seeming-unrelated domains such as video content at Viddler and Ustream
does / should an archive handle this?
