|Checking on some old material to provide some cross-referencing I got this message:|
I've always taken it for granted that HN contained useful information that I'd be able to retrieve whenever I found the need, but this has brought me up short. Perhaps older discussions will eventually become unavailable. Will Google cache still have them? Will the Wayback machine still have them? How convenient will they be to find in the future.
We've temporarily limited requests for old items.
Probably this is a temporary glitch to prevent some overly enthusiastic crawler from bringing the site to a halt, but it just made me wonder.
 Many of you will know that this is an activity I still perform occasionally, although now severely curtailed as compared with how it used to be.
