I've always know about Penny Arcade; I think over the years I've even visited a comic strip or two, but never with any regularity.
Last week I started all the way back in 1998 with the original comic strip and started reading, often following up on the news and reminiscing on what was popular/important/at issue at the time. I'm currently almost to 2003, and a recurring theme in the news is that the links are broken. Granted, we're traversing back in time some 5 years and websites go out of business, move websites, change domains...
But even some of the internal links are broken, and quite often I'll find a link to Gamasutra or Gameinformer to an article that isn't there anymore.
Is there any intent, future or otherwise to try maintaining links for historical significance? I find myself somewhat disappointed as I try plodding in the footsteps of Penny Arcade's trek to the present and keep finding missing footsteps.
