after I remarked in November last year that the cctech archives have been `lost`

Well, it is certainly true that the archives visible under
only go back to November 2014.

Thanks to the Internet Archive there is a full backup of the older
archive sections readily available online. Simply open


and one gets all archives from October 2014 back to February 2005.

There I found the postings I was looking for, and updated my links to use
http://web.archive.org/. That's all.

So in a wider sense nothing is lost, one has to search in the right place.
