Turn Out the Link…

And then turn out the link? Note that links to the many good pages of the trAce Online Writing Centre (1995-2005), at trace.ntu.ac.uk, will no longer work, and should, in theory, be updated to point to tracearchive.ntu.ac.uk. Of course, there’s no easy, general way to deal with link rot; from a searcher’s perspective, you can try to find the old page on the Internet Archive, or maybe you know enough about the resource to re-Google what you’re seeking. You can read further about the trAce de-linking and the specific fracas surrounding it.
