How about we link to that instead of http://techcrunch.com/2016/04/19/aaduino/?ncid=rss&utm_sourc....

Edit: well that didn't work. URL changed back from http://johan.kanflo.com/the-aaduino/.

Aw, that sucks.

I'm never sure quite what to do in this situation. It depends on what the author would want.

It would be awesome if HN automatically created a archived version using https://archive.org/ and added a archive link below the post like the web link.

If you're interested, here's a simple bookmarklet I made. It opens the title link at the top of an HN comments page via archive.org:

javascript:window.open('https://web.archive.org/web/' + document.getElementsByClassName('athing')[0].getElementsByTagName('a')[1].href);

I've been nagging dang to do that for a while! :-)

Definitely would improve the user experience here and respect the bandwidth of low resource servers like mine. :)

You might consider using CloudFlare's free service, it helps a lot in cases such as this.

Yes, good idea. I'm currently moving to using a static site generated by Lektor. That would help a lot.

That's why I linked to TC. For the low interest traffic to avoid crashing the server. :)

Maybe a web archive link? You are always on top of things dang!

It seems like the blog post stays accessible as long as it isn't the URL at the top of HN, so we've reverted to what you had originally. Sorry for the distraction.

No need to say sorry. Your hard work is appreciated!
