Hi there. I apologize if I am getting this format wrong. The link that is posted as the website for Wataru Watanabe does not appear to work. This is probably more an FYI.

Thanks!

There are probably thousands of old dead or moved links in the database. This one dropped off the net in 2009 when the hosting service was taken down so I have hidden it.

What about pointing to the Internet archive instead of just hiding dead links?

I'm sure I've previously suggested the need for some standardised way of of saving dead links and marking them as being from the archive (I can't find any such post however).

--edit--

It was in the staff forum and didn't get much comment.

Well, I would prefer either changing the link to the archive or leaving the dead link so I could search the archive myself over just hiding dead links...

Old pages could still contain useful information.
