Or ask the Internet Archive!

As I said before, I am sure that it's possible to extract the text of 
the abstracts from conftool, provided of course that you can still get 
access to the right conftool instance!

And I must say I think the text of the abstracts is probably at least as 
important to save as is the detail of the hotel prices.... :-)

I am taking the liberty of copying Syd in on this thread (though 
presumably he's already seen it on TEI-L) -- but surely other members of 
the 2010 PC can get hold of these texts too?
