Super-Advanced Daily Godville Times Newspaper Archiving System™

I've set up a system to automatically capture each day's Godville Times newspaper. To view the archives, click here. For technical details, see below.

Super-Technical Details
The fabled Super-Advanced Daily Godville Times Newspaper Archiving SystemTM, in all its glory.

The system is running on a 2012 Raspberry Pi Model B, running Raspbian Linux. It's connected to a small WiFi dongle (the glowing blue part in the picture) to give it internet access. I keep it in a cardboard box (not pictured) so the blinking lights aren't visible and/or annoying. Interestingly, since it is a Raspberry Pi, the entire setup is only about three inches wide (excluding the box).

The system is set using a daily cron job to use wget's web spider mode to ping http://web.archive.org/save/godvillegame.com/news, which causes archive.org to save the page in its archives. (This is the URL you're sent to when you save a page on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. You can theoretically use this to save any page in a similar manner if you specify that page's URL in place of the news link.)

Because of the way I have my cron configured, the page will most likely be archived at or around 10:25:05 each day, according to the archive.org records.

Note that this won't work if my system is offline for some reason (eg. power outage, failing internet router, "accidentally" unplugged, etc.), so if you see that today's newspaper hasn't been archived yet, feel free to do it yourself by clicking here.

Note: I'm not actually the one storing or hosting the archives; archive.org does that. All I'm doing is telling them daily to save the page.
