Hi, precisely, the fact that it's "Indie" means it's relatively more expensive
to maintain long term... and individuals shutting down their sites mean all
those dynamic links loosing their sources forever if it hasn't been crawled by
something else.

There must be some process that guarantees one's site gets visited and archived
by such sites as the Internet Archive, right?
