Linked to Web Archive

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) released a new website in mid June, with a simpler, bolder design. However, as a result of rationalizing the content on the site, thousands of links from my website to ACS no longer work. Many of these links are to material which is no longer current, so I have replacement them to the archived copy of the ACS web site in the Internet Archive, as of 8 February 2006. To do this I used the tool RegExxer.

I selected a date in 2006 as it is just after the time when I created most of the links. If I select the latest version in the archive (in 2012), it tends to produce just a "Error 404" page. Please let me know if links do not work, or are to the wrong document.
