We do indeed collect the Link List archives. A search on Trove using the words Link and List will find it - though best to limit the search to the "Archived websites (1996 - now)" silo to you don't have to wade through the Books, Pictures etc. Or doe the same search using the search box on the PANDORA website which will take you to the Trove results.

It is part of the PANDORA collection and the entry page is http://nla.gov.au/nla.arc-69650

They are also archiving websites - which I guess means they have a copy of
