This is stupid as Alta Vista is just a domain name running on full automation.
It's not like anyone is out developing it or anything.
If there was an IHS (Internet Historical Society) I would have them appeal that decision based on Alta Vista being a true historical landmark and should be restored to it's original look and feel and place in permanent landmark status so our grandkids can see how the internet began.
It was such a big deal and mostly the response speed was what everyone thought was cool because AV gave you answers QUICK!
Oh well, so it goes and Yahoo probably didn't even have a single person assigned to AV, they just didn't want to renew the $35 domain name as it cut into the CEOs bonus.
