Not that it would really prove much in an argument, but you can get a free webcrawler, like HTTrack and index your sources on your hard drive, along
with all the things it links to. That way, at least you could be personally sure you're not imagining things. I use it sometimes to back up useful
things I see on the internet, but fear could disappear without notice. Sometimes I use it just to back up useful websites like hyperphysics, and some
sites on survival so I can access them even when the internet stops working (a pox on this DSL!).
It lets you browse backed up websites in your web browser as if you were online, but without any need for the internet. I want a copy of wikipedia
(yes, the whole damn thing), but they don't like people using web crawlers because it slows it down for everybody else, and prefer people copying
their site through other methods that don't impact their site's speed, so I'm obliging them and holding off until I can find a better way.
Just get a program like that, there's a lot of open source ones, and enter the website you want copied. It'll generally be pretty smart about which
links it saves.
It's way better than just saving the webpage using the browser's built-in feature, because it's a much better copy, with all the nested hierarchies
intact so it works just like the real thing.
Hope it helps!
