HPR show notes which contain images or which link to other files are something we encourage. However, when uploading these to the Internet Archive (IA) at
archive.org there are a number of issues:
If a file has been submitted as part of the original HPR upload we copy it to
archive.org and use the URL of the copy in the notes. This mechanism has been added in the past few months and seems to be working fine.
If the notes for a show contain links to external files these do not always seem to be accessible through the
archive.org interface. For example, the recent show 2406 links to an image showing the cabling of a CAT6 plug, but the
archive.org copy did not show this image (though it does now - see below).
One way of dealing with the issue of external files would be to make a copy and place it on the HPR site, then it would be uploaded to the IA as described earlier. This might have copyright issues though.
Another way would be to point to a copy on the Wayback Machine (WM). Sometimes the file has been copied there already, or it is possible to request that the WM snapshot it. This is what was done for the IA copy of show 2406. However, it was a manual process and therefore rather labour-intensive, which is not ideal.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this situation would be appreciated.
