Just a headsup for everyone.
I woke up this morning to find Springer changing their model for their Encyclopedia of Mathematics and in the process breaking all existing links to eom.springer.com.
I know quite a few of us (semi-)regularly cite the Springer EOM for definitions and what-nots in posts and comments (yours truly included). This move most likely has caused some severe breakage to the readability of some posts. (And with comments not editable....)
The problem is that the original Springer EOM pages had different naming scheme at the level of the URL, so I suspect it is not quite possible for Anton to just do a glob on the database and replace the links to their new names (it would probably require a bit of hacking up a perl script and a copy of the complete index of the original EOM).
So in the event that Springer does not realise what they've done and repaired the links, we as a community will probably need to keep an eye out for old, broken, EOM links and replace them with new ones.
Can you point me to a post with an eom.springer.com link in it? I seem to be unable to find them.
The site is eom.springer.de try this search: http://www.google.com/search?btnG=1&pws=0&q=site%3Amathoverflow.net+%22eom.springer%22.
grep 'eom\.springer' posts.xml (run on last month's database dump; this month's is in progress) returns only 70 hits, so it shouldn't be a huge deal to fix. For ambiguous ones (like the one DavidRoberts point out), we could just leave a comment asking the owner to update the post.
grep 'eom\.springer' posts.xml
@George - not to mention the time limit on how long google keeps the cache.
btw, here's the list of all posts with eom links as of December 1 (generated with grep 'eom\.springer' posts.xml | sed -e 's|.* Id="\([0-9]*\)".*|[\1](http://mathoverflow.net/questions/\1)|' from the latest database dump)
grep 'eom\.springer' posts.xml | sed -e 's|.* Id="\([0-9]*\)".*|[\1](http://mathoverflow.net/questions/\1)|'
[Edit: corrected error in command; see post by darijgrinberg below. Thanks for the correction]
Anton, your sed collects the wrong Id numbers (apparently the last in each line, or something like that). Replace "Id" by "\ Id" to get the right links:
EDIT: now from the right file, too (latest public dump)
Great, thanks Nathan!
