A trick to store PDF file an the internet

When you see a PDF file you really want to read but don't have time yet, what you usually do is download it to your local machine. But then, you will probably forget about it forever. If you do nothing, who know when will these PDF files gone with the wind…

Many people are using read-it-later applications like Instapaper, Pinboard or Pocket to keep a list of stuff that they will probably coming back to read. But these tools still can't save PDF.

One best way to sove any PDF file to your read later list and make sure it don't get lost anytime soon is: Archive the PDF file into Wayback Machine (web.archive.org) and save that archive link to the read later list.

It may being saved with a weird title, Instapaper provide you a way to rename a link title after save, Pocket isn't.
