History is littered with hundreds of conflicts over the future of a community, group, location or business that were “resolved” when one of the parties stepped ahead and destroyed what was there. With the original point of contention destroyed, the debates would fall to the wayside. Archive Team believes that by duplicated condemned data, the conversation and debate can continue, as well as the richness and insight gained by keeping the materials. Our projects have ranged in size from a single volunteer downloading the data to a small-but-critical site, to over 100 volunteers stepping forward to acquire terabytes of user-created data to save for future generations.
The main site for Archive Team is at archiveteam.org and contains up to the date information on various projects, manifestos, plans and walkthroughs.
This collection contains the output of many Archive Team projects, both ongoing and completed. Thanks to the generous providing of disk space by the Internet Archive, multi-terabyte datasets can be made available, as well as in use by the Wayback Machine, providing a path back to lost websites and work.
Our collection has grown to the point of having sub-collections for the type of data we acquire. If you are seeking to browse the contents of these collections, the Wayback Machine is the best first stop. Otherwise, you are free to dig into the stacks to see what you may find.
The Archive Team Panic Downloads are full pulldowns of currently extant websites, meant to serve as emergency backups for needed sites that are in danger of closing, or which will be missed dearly if suddenly lost due to hard drive crashes or server failures.
Sean Avery has always been known to be an annoying presence in the NHL. His attitude in the locker room is known to make teams want to get rid of him. But of all the spiteful comments and other antics he pulled on the way to becoming the biggest pest in hockey, never had he gone so far that the NHL suspended him–until Tuesday.
According to the Associated Press, Avery was suspended indefinitely by commissioner Gary Bettman for using a crude term about his former girlfriend now dating other hockey players.
Avery, 28, used a derogatory term to refer to his former girlfriends, saying that it had “become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with” them. He made the comment to reporters after the Stars’ morning skate before their 3-1 victory Tuesday night in Calgary.
Avery’s ex-girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert of the television show “24” and the movie “Old School,” is dating Calgary defenseman Dion Phaneuf; she had been romantically linked to Mike Komisarek of the Montreal Canadiens. Avery also dated Rachel Hunter, the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model and actress who is now the girlfriend of Los Angeles Kings center Jarrett Stoll.
Avery signed a four-year, $15.5 million contract with Dallas in July, after playing for the Rangers for a little more than a season.
“He made stupid comments and it bit him,” said Flames forward Craig Conroy, Avery’s former teammate with the Kings. “He probably thought it was funny. The league didn’t think it was funny, the Dallas Stars didn’t think it was funny and nobody thought it was funny.”
