The bottom line is: Websites are no good. Fragile, unstable, never know how long it'll be there.

What we need is diskmags! Everything should be on a physical media so it'll live forever!  :)

Except it doesn't, tapes degrade and discs rot.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

We use M-Disc then. They live forever! 1000 years!
Blu-ray rulez! \o/

I also like about blu-ray, that you can actually implement a webserver on the disc, theoretically making it possible to put website backups on a blu-ray disc and run it on any blu-ray disc player. Just pop the disc into your livingroom player, and access the website from your PC using the LAN IP of the blu-ray player.
I have already used this technique for a couple of videoalbums, making it possible to view the videos on a tablet or phone via LAN.
