I have no idea.
Content loss is what I implied by mentioning the Wayback Machine. If Xavier has a backup, it's not anywhere on the internet that I've seen. This is it.
The WM's most recent snapshot is from March 2008. Now, I don't *think* the site's been down that long; I recall accessing it more recently in the last two years. Maybe he just blocked the archive.org bots.
Anyway, the stuff I've had to reconstruct is all from that snapshot. Unless other GDP members have anything newer in their devspaces, what you see on the WM is what you get.
