Query about the June 2015 archive of www.aias.us on www.webarchive.org.uk

July 30, 2015

Diolch yn fawr, thank you very much, the link is:

www.webarchive.org.uk/ukwa/target/37617687/source/search

and is found in the reference links section of my page, “Myron Evans”

The concept of archiving sounds so grand, so official, that many people may not realize what sort of drivel (quite apart from Ron’s) this site scrapes together. Here is an example:

http://www.webarchive.org.uk/wayback/archive/20100520065257/http://www.loonyparty.com/index.php?mact=Printing,cntnt01,output,0&cntnt01url=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5sb29ueXBhcnR5LmNvbS9pbmRleC5waHA%2FcGFnZT1wZXJwZXR1YWwtbW90aW9uJnNob3d0ZW1wbGF0ZT1mYWxzZQ%3D%3D&cntnt01pageid=103&cntnt01script=1&cntnt01returnid=103

It is of course a joke, but they cannot even get the joke right. The conceit is that the cat cannot land on its back. and the toast cannot land plain-side down. Then, surely, the cat should be standing on the buttered side of the toast, One wonders whether Ron’s work will ever inspire such detailed analysis.
