There's no fix to it. If archive.org doesn't work, then we need to pull
data directly from the website. We can do that. The infrastructure I'm
developing is agnostic of whether we use archive.org or not. However,
pulling data directly from websites will make the test suite behave
differently depending on when you run the test so the test suite can't be
open that way.
