Paper doesn't change

Well, of course, paper does change. But for those of us used to the evanescence and volatility of the intaweb, it can be amusing to see printed matter getting out of date.

In particular, I note two items in the latest issue of Vector.

1) The back cover ad for NewCon 5. Sadly, this event has been postponed, but the ad cheerily still lists its original date.

2) An actual web link to an article on nwhyte's LJ ... which is now known as nwhyte. Luckily, the old journal name still works, but at some stage, it will presumably get reused by someone else.

ETA: Since as happydisciple points out, those two links are showing up the same, I should point out that the first one was entered (and is editable for me) as 'nhw'.
