The problem is not archiving, but rather retrieving the data.

As a current example, I am looking for information on the Jonas Escort 
computers. A slight misspelling (Jonas instead of Jonos) resulted in a 
whole slew of graphic escort services. And spelling it properly has 
resulted in basically zero useful information about the computer itself.

It is hard to believe the almost total lack of information on the Jonos. 
If the scarcity is real, it must be worth at least as much as the Apple 
I :).

And ditto for the Molecular Computer although not as bad as the Jonos.

BTW, these are two computers I'm looking at bringing to VCFMW if there 
is any serious interest.

Instead of the search engines working to improve AI, they should be 
putting more effort into ESP.
