I've noticed recently that all old links to Universe Today articles are broken, because of the change a couple of months back from URLs containing the date to URLs containing code numbers. There are some great resources in the UT archives, and I'd like my collection of links to keep working.

Are there plans to address this? Automatic redirection would be favourite, of course, but I can think of second-best solutions that would do the job adequately.

I assume there are comprehensive records of which old URLs correspond to which new URLs (so that one could write a simple script that takes one as input, looks it up, and delivers the other as output). In the event that such records were destroyed in an asteroid impact, though, I would offer to help out in their recovery.
