How long do Links Survive on the Internet?

I linked to an article on LinkedIn in January of 2016. I went back to it yesterday, and it was gone. As I work on other projects, I notice that many links that don't seem very old (less than a year) return a "404" error message. [more inside]

Looking for iOS/Web Twitter Clients that Let Me Just Show Link Tweets

Easy-to-use hyperlinks in printed media?

I'm involved in writing a book that will published in both electronic and print versions. The book will be semi-academic, and will provide many (hyper)links to electronic sources. While this is easy to do in the electronic version, what is an easy way for the reader to retrieve a link to something in the hard copy? Possible solutions would be to print QR codes in the print version for every link, using Layar, or simply list a short number/code which would then correspond to the link when looked up on a separate website. Do you have any other suggestions? Again, the goal is to make it as easy as possible for the reader of a print copy to dig deeper into the other sources. I'm just looking for ideas now, assume that there is no limitation on cost or manpower. Thanks in advance!

And sometimes the blonde likes to wear...

I can't believe I'm burning a question on this, but in the last few months, one of those cartoon style text and picture... thingies was going around Facebook. It featured a women who was lamenting people who expect there to be guy and a girl in same-sex relationships, and (I think) ended in a panel that said "And sometimes the blonde likes to wear the strap-on." Does anyone have a link to it? (As y'all can imagine, while the Google results for this particular query are highly interesting, they're not very useful to the particular question at hand. Thanks, all!)

Linking Social Networks

I have been combing the social networks I use trying to find a way to link two of them. It's not a big list; Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Soundcloud, and Wordpress. I know about IFTTT and Hootsuite, but I'd prefer to not use third party apps if possible. Facebook and Twitter of course, connect to almost everything. But I'm also trying to figure out how stuff I upload to Soundcloud can be posted on LinkedIn. And likewise, I can't get LinkedIn posts to show up my Facebook business page. Is it just not possible w/o 3rd party apps that will make posts I don't need? If there is a way, can somebody tell me?

HTML not supported

I am using Serif Webplus Free Edition to build a website. But I am unable to link the pages to each other as the built in site checker recommends. I can't generate .html or insert .html. The pages themselves are labled index.html, page1.html, etc. But when I preview it in Internet Explorer, the navigation bar won't take me to following or preceeding pages. Is the problem with me or the software? What am I doing wrong?

Website's links suddenly broken in IE8

My company's website is having a bizarre experience: our links have stopped working, suddenly, in IE8 only. They focus but don't trigger the target URL to open. Naturally, most of our clients use IE8. No changes have been made recently. The site is DNN-based, and we've opened a support ticket with DotNetNuke, but I'm stumped. What should I be looking at? Memail me if seeing the site would be helpful and I can give you the URL.

Links not following through?

Why is it suddenly when I hit links to certain sites (io9 etc) it doesn't take me to the article but to the main page and I have to search for the link that I wanted?

One link to rule them all.

I'm no web designer (I'll still make little pages with HTML/CSS if I have to, but that's about it). I have a web page, a reference page of sorts for friends and family, with links to other websites.

Should links open in a new window?

Is it better to have links open in a new window, or to open in the same window? Maybe this belongs in projects, but I'll ask here. When I launched my magazine site in January, I had links opening in a new window. But then, I noticed that the sites I liked the most, like Kottke and Metafilter, didn't do this. Instead of opening a new window they had links go straight to the page they were linking to. [more inside]
