Preserving History

I've been archiving my blog pages today using the "Save Page As..." feature of Firebird. I think that IE offers a similar feature where the HTML is saved, along with copies of all of the graphics.

Saving the graphics is escpecially important to me since I am a Bandwidth Bandit - I link to pictures outside my web site.

I noticed 4 or 5 pictures that were no longer available, and the ALT text was showing instead.

I'll be archiving on a monthly basis from now on. I may also go back and try to find new but similar graphics for the old posts.
