Interesting factoid of the day:
You choose if internet archive will archive your site or not using a file called robots.txt

This file comes from a 1990s era agreement between libraries when they thought lots of people would be archiving websites

Today the only place you can find a copy of that agreement is internet archive as no one but them actually went through with plans to archive websites.

@Canageek we live in a future where everyone has forgotten the value of preserving what humans made in the past, and it's a damn good thing that at least the internet archive is around
