OK, tomorrow (or tonight) I will look into the redirect rich suggests.
I note several other folk do have access to the dns server and if they
beat me to it I won't mind at all....

Toke has a preliminary conversion done but it lacks fixing the paths
and bug issues as well (archive.org is also missing the issues db).

I am only alive for small values of alive. I am glad "us" is still
alive and kicking.

Well, if I had any advanced plan, it was to convert to a static, git
managed, hugo repo, and start using a CDN of some sort directly. I
have plenty of linodes lying around, but if we could get worldwide
distribution for a (cdns seem to charge for data transfer rather than
storage), without even having a central site, that would be nice.

Secondarily I'd really like to transfer all the fixed assets I
maintain and pay for to some independent set of individuals or an
institution (nlnet's upcoming "commons conservancy" is the strongest
possibility - https://nlnet.nl/project/commonsconservancy/ for some
details) - or adopt something like lede's "3 man rule" for access to
all assets.
