Hmm, that strikes me as being quite a big problem. Google is chock full of
links to the LFS archives. I s'pose in theory Google will eventually catch
up. But I imagine there could be quite a few people's pages out there with
links to the archives.

Also, think of how often someone posts a link to an old thread on the very
same list! Those "internal" links will surely become cactus.

limit the search to a particular list. Oh well, them's the breaks!

Thanks for the efforts to get this thing back on line.
