The Three Musketeers strike again! (PDp, pegz, and Dupes) You cats have made my day, week, and month! As a proud Early Adopter of your Greasemonkey and Linx Amender scripts (and the actually working https://archive.org/iathreads/forums.php page they provide), I can say I'm looking forward to many hours of usage and enjoyment of the Archive. I especially look forward to the Classic skin, as Internet Archive "Your Way" (as in freedom to choose) is the *only* way. Many thanks for this excellent work, pegz!

Many thanks! Most of the work comes from TimidScript (without him, I would've been forced to write a new script), but I can easily envision a working site with "themes" involved– I simply have to write a new script (others can do the same as well, or we can pool our efforts). As I took the week off last week, I pondered… there's no way I'm going to clone the Archive, and set up a new server so that I can fix mere spelling mistakes! Eventually, I discovered Augmented browsing and had an "Aha" moment: Simply reprogram the website client-side using extensions that anyone can just freely download; forget servers; forget database access. TimidScript has told me that he is working on updating Lynx Amender and that with version 4 "you will be able to share your own personal rules with the world or to certain individuals through online synchronization and sharing." That means that in the future, Lynx Amender will allow for user customization on the Internet Archive via a variety of different rules. That's later on in the future, though, so in the meantime I'll also write a new user script for the Archive, as well.
