Redirecting Stale URLs with Timed Links

SIGLINK Newsletter paper on using Netscape timing for stale URLs.

Here is the information file that has been moved from StaleURL to NewURL.

If you select this link for StaleURL the file you get will contain a header instructing Netscape to immediately retrieve the file at a different URL. It will be the information file.

Try selecting this slow redirected link to retrieve the information file by automatic redirection, but with a brief pause so you can better see what is happening.
