Resources pages going down

At Queen Mary, I used to maintain two pages with links to resources, one for permutation groups, the other for designs. (The latter is quite separate from the DesignTheory.org website.)

These pages have not been maintained for a long time now, and I am sure that many of the links no longer work. But maintaining the pages is not just a case of bringing the links up to date (and deleting those which don’t work), but more importantly would require me to scour the web for new links to add.

I have always thought that a carefully curated page may be more useful than the result of a Google search, but the margin is becoming smaller. So reluctantly I have decided to remove these pages.

They will go at the end of this year. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions before then.

  1. I would much rather the pages stayed up but with a warning along the lines of “this page isn’t being updated any more; the links may stop working”. As long as it’s not costing you anything to keep them up, why not just leave them?
