Hi Yawning,
hi all,

sorry if this is old news, but I just noticed that archive.is not only
redirects me to archive.fo (which I noticed before), but archive.fo
now greets me with a CloudFlare captcha.

Considering that cfc was created in order to evade the CloudFlare
captcha, this is quite a disappointment. Is cfc useless now? Can it be

David F suggested using Memento which I think is an interesting idea,
having participated in one of their hackathons. One caveat: Memento
would point to to various archives not all of which might be suitable.

What is the reason why archive.org is not used? I hear they are almost
done setting up an onion service for the Internet Archive.
