The only semi-reliable thing I could think of was linking to the page in the google cache: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsuperuser.com%2Fquestions%2F231977%2Fhow-do-i-diagnose-not-being-able-to-reach-a-specific-website-as-an-end-user But you can't control how frequently it's updated, etc. Also, not the prettiest of ...

You can use this form to ask Facebook to reconsider: http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=page_category_change (Credit where credit's due - I found that via this helpful article on Facebook pages.)

If your users are having DNS problems, they are unlikely to be able to resolve any host names at all. In that cause, no mirror will help, as any mirror still requires a DNS lookup to resolve (http://something/some-page) into an IP address. So the fail safe way is to give the address raw (eg 164.34.119.12/page). However, this doesn't work with virtual hosts. ...

Continuing on from the chat... I think the best method would be some sort of status checker where if it detects the site is up, it can display helpful hints / a copy of the answer. I have made a sample site that demonstrates what I mean - without any sort of style/Ajaxy effects. It can be viewed at http://ezpcinternal.com/v2.aspx

Why not create a simple shell script that runs on a CRON job and creates a local mirror of the page automatically using wget's built-in mirroring feature? Maybe something like: #!/bin/bash rm -rf ./mirror wget -E -H -k -K -p -P ./mirror "http://superuser.com/questions/231977" The "mirror" folder could be symlinked to a folder served by the web server ...

I was looking at the using the Google App Engine as my own CDN and found a nice article on how to do it here http://www.digitalistic.com/2008/06/09/10-easy-steps-to-use-google-app-engine-as-your-own-cdn/ I am sure it is fairly easy to also host this page or pages there, could probably even use web services to connect back you your site to do any updating ...

The following url will suffice (in chrome): mail.google.com After that you will be either entering your Gmail account or asked to sign in (you will be re-directed automatically). Use the Account Chooser to add muliple google accounts. Lateron, you can swap between different accounts (Mail) and do that in different Google Apps.

If you post to a friend's timeline the day of his birthday, your post will appear in a special box on the timeline. 91 friends posted on your timeline for your birthday. If you can't find it, you can use the "View friendship" feature to find all the relations between you and him:

Don't think there's much you can do except go in and manually choose which ones to delete. Facebook does have the ability for you to "mass delete" photos, so at least you won't have to do them one by one. As far as automatically searching for and removing duplicates, afraid that's not possible. Hope this helped.

The facebook page you linked to is not actually a page but a facebook application, an facebook application can have custom html, dynamic pages and other stuff, an actual facebook page can have an cover photo and profile pic only. You cannot customize a facebook page so you can write an facebook application, facebook's guide to creat a application can be ...

You could try mirroring a particular page with AWS Cloudfront. Using the ability to have Cloudfront pull from an origin server your page should always be up to date. A user who requested the page from the distribution would in turn cause Cloudfront to request the content from the origin.
