Will Someone Invent ‘Forever’ Soon? Please?

“To surf the website of the Maaskant project, go to maaskant.leidenuniv.nl/alms1.htm…We were there.  We worked at the house…That this valuable prehistoric evidence was going to make it to the present was far from evident…But now, the house is there, on the website, readily visible for the worldwide Internet community.  It has been saved.” (Van Reybrouk and Jacobs, 2006)

Last sighting of the Maaskant project website, September 17, 2007.
