    Tuning in in the middle of this, what NPR story was being discussed? I presume this livecast thing can be replayed later on Youtube?

    You mentioned webcite (? I couldn’t find it) to semi-officially save a webpage’s state on the date and time you make the request. There’s also archive.org that you can search for older versions of a site, though it seems to only have copies of more popular sites. It DOES have a provision to save a current copy of a site, but from what I recall it saves it “soon,” not necessarily the same day as you submit the request. It might be interesting to try, to see what it does.

    Tim, I’ve spotted Mabus posting on usenet in sci.astro in the last few days. He’s going for broad spectrum spamming it seems.
