  1. Note: sometimes the internet archive site “the wayback machine” has been a bit balky for me, and I’ve not always been able to access these archived entries on the first try. If the archive link doesn’t work, you can try the Google Cache.

    For instance if the archive link is:

    and hit search. That will most likely bring up the page in question
