Re: Dissappearing Archos mod docs?

Funny you'd mention the 8mb mod. I was just sitting here thinking
about doing that to one of my machines....

Fortunately the Wayback Machine has already done that for this site.

http://web.archive.org/web/20031210040719/http://waechter.wiz.at/~matthias/Rockbox/HW-Mod/8MB/

But yes, I think it to be a grand idea to grab these pages and archive
them in a common place. It would be a courtesy to the authors but not
a requirement to ask permission, no more than the Wayback Machine or
Google does.

For your own use, if you're using FireFox, there is a nifty extension
called Scrap Book that grabs designated pages for local storage. It
is somewhat like the Web Stripper programs except that it works and is
simple to use. I use it extensively.

I wonder where all the Archos's are going if they are disappearing?
I'd not mind buying a few more JBRs.
