For reasons, I just noticed that this URL for an 2007 article in The Age still works. The URL scheme has completely changed but it still redirects because they’ve embraced the attitude good URL never die. It’s dandy. http://www.theage.com.au/news/web/goodbye-information-superhighway/2007/08/02/1185648044623.html
The current URL scheme is much shorter and nowhere near as weird.
