Bandwidth is about $200 to $300 per month, average.
PIE and advertising is about $20 to $25 per month, average.
That's a a LOT of PIE.

In essence a screen shot/html shot of the site as it was when the site was running. Guessing the answer is mostly no. For example I went by a 9 year old thread just a bit ago with about 20 links in it that all the links were dead. Some linked to public university stuff that can probably be found again by proper searches but other stuff is just gone. Guessing the answer is no. But just stirring the thinking pot.
