Thank goodness the cost of storage has dropped and someone 'else' is 
paying for all those iPads!

I am using the Wayback machine to find articles that have been moved 
around to non-findability in redesigned websites. It's easier than 
trying to find something in the original source. There are a few 
times I'm unsuccessful for both locations, but frequently the Wayback 
machine will also have multiple versions from different times they 
have cached the site.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
