I would be grateful if this notice could be posted as the first item on the home page, below the Spanish flag.

To access the digital archives of www.aias.us on the Wayback Machine www.archive.org, type in http://aias.us/ . It is important to include the final backslash /. Then choose a date and click on any item. This is an archive of over three thousand five hundred items, covering forty six continuous years of my work from 1971 to present, with excellent co workers. Combined sites www.aias.us and www.upitec.org have attracted over twenty two million hits since May 2002, the date of the first archive on the Wayback Machine in San Francisco. Over summer, the archive will also become available from the National Library of Wales (Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru) on www.webarchive.org.uk at the reading rooms of all the British and Irish Legal Deposit Libraries, using Wayback Machine software: The British Library in London, the Bodleian Library Oxford, Cambridge University Library, The National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh, the National Library of Wales (Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru) in Aberystwyth, and the Library of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. The staff of AIAS / UPITEC will also keep the sites live for the foreseeable future, and also keep multiple offline back ups, impervious to hacking attacks. Finally I am negotiating to have the original manuscripts archived in optimal conditions of humidity and air conditioning, in addition to the digital archives. Many thanks to all archivists, diolch yn fawr iawn! “Bid ben bid bont” (“Let there be knowledge, let there be a Bridge to Life”). Motto of both Pontardawe Grammar School and University College of Wales, Aberystwyth. My personal armorial motto on my coat of arms is a line of my own cynghanedd: “Poer y Llwch o’r Paer Llachar” from an englyn to the coal miner: “The Dust Pours from the Fiery Cauldron”.
