I recently ran through some of the site favourites I had bookmarked over the past few months and, in some cases, years, and was unable to open 21 sites out of the 40 I checked,
they had vanished. All the more reason why we need to cross reference information and, where necessary, share it without people harping on about copyright all the time.
Information not shared is lost, remember that. Should any of those now vanished sites be bookmarked below, please let me know and I shall remove it. I received an email
informing me of this site: 
http://www.archive.org/ It holds, apparently, all long dead sites. Most of the sites below are for reference. I have not used any of their content without prior permission.
