new info Robyn's page

Not sure about the finer points of computer wonkiness but
this is from Robyn about her new page(s).

of all sites every once in a while and old pages will be there.  Of
course, if they want to order something, they'll have to take a real time
machine!  But, it's useful if they just want to read the info. I just
checked my site and they no longer seem to have my pages from before 2000
although my site started in 1997 and I thought I visited before.  Perhaps
they delete some archives over time.  I would hope not for the sake of the
hundreds of invalid links on my site.  Not many people know about
archive.org though.<<

IIRC www.archive.org only started working "properly" in the year 2000, and
I'm not sure if they are up to full speed yet.

It's a megatask to keep the millions of websites archived :eek:
