BBC to delete 172 unarchived web sites. Total saving: $3.99

From Boing Boing:

The TV people are winning at the BBC, and so they’re gutting their online budget, shutting down 172 websites. Many of them won’t be archived by the Beeb, left to vanish forever.

But one license payer thinks this is stupid. So he spent $3.99 to crawl and make a torrent out of all the threatened BBC websites. You can download the file and keep it alive, preserving the media that our license fees have paid for even though the BBC can’t be arsed to do it themselves.
