What the squat?

The registration for several old BiCon domains has ended up lapsing and several have been re-registered by other people. Links to your domain are useful in terms of Google listings and there tend to be plenty of links to BiCon sites.

bicon2009.org.uk is one such. Its second registrant had a small education website. Looking on archive.org, there were only a couple of pages with a few low quality but not obviously spammy links... and it started with "Welcome too bicon2009.org.uk". Oops.

Since July, it's now on probably its third registrant but they don't seem to have done anything with it, beyond putting it on a parked domain service that's probably showing ads to visitors. (Thank you AdBlock for sparing me those.)

Anyway, this is mostly to say that 2009.bicon.org.uk now has most of the real site. Unfortunately, I can't find any of the pictures it once had or the downloads (like a PDF of the programme booklet) so if anyone has a better copy than archive.org's...
