When I retrieve a memento from archive.org images are often represented like this:

/web//20020330125940im_/http://example.com:80/mc-main.jpg

which doesn't resolve. If I remove "im_", it has resolved when I have tried, e.g.:


Is that intentional?

for completeness, I'm putting the link to my answer to Kendall's question
that I answered elsewhere (before his mesg went through):

short answer: it should not make a difference if "im_" is there or not.

I'm not sure if the examples you give below are supposed to be real or
constructed; when I turn them into:

http://web.archive.org/web/20020330125940im_/http://example.com:80/mc-main.jpg

http://web.archive.org/web/20020330125940/http://example.com:80/mc-main.jpg

both give 404; the first (with "im_") is just a 0 length 404, and the 2nd
gives a pretty html page saying the same thing.

Michael
