I wanted to explain to a (possible) newb that pizza once cost 10,000 BTC.

After doing a "Bing"(TM) search, I came across a Bitcoin history page.

On that page, I found the following link to the pizzas:
http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137.msg1195#msg1195.

For historical reasons that should probably be documented on that page, that link gave a 404 error.

I tried "fixing" it as follows:
https://bitcointalk.org/smf/index.php?topic=137.msg1195#msg1195

I then got the following message:
Quote from: 500 Internal Server Error
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, you@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I always do as I am told Wink
Edit: looks like the forum auto-corrects my error report Tongue

Yeah, we don't use /smf anymore and for some reason the server always gives a 500 error instead of a 404.

I fixed the links on that page.

I fixed the links on that page.

One down, 520 articles to go.

Well, to be fair there probably are only a hundred or so articles with links to the old domain and path

Someone doing a global search at the db level would be able to identify these articles.   I suppose a search and replace could be done also, but that's an exception to the rule for human-edited wikis.

Wouldn't a redirect be easier?

  Bitcoin.org != BitcoinTalk.org

(The bad links are http://bitcoin.org/ smf/index.php or http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php  and those need to become http://bitcointalk.org/index.php )

[Update: Ha, here in SMF it automatically translates bitcoin.org/ smf   URLs to  bitcointalk.org/   ]

Forum.bitcoin.org links are redirected, but it's apparently impossible/inconvenient to have github redirect from bitcoin.org/smf.
