Right -- this is what I had in mind. If there's a way to find and repair dead links, this would be a useful process to run quarterly, perhaps on weekends.

Just trying to find a general solution to keep the site's content as healthy as possible. I still love going back to read old posts. :)

    Some solutions in Batch remove URLs, I'm sure it's come up a few times. You could tweak it to flag URLs which aren't accessible, perhaps linking to a couple of the well known archives if they have an entry.
