Sometimes an image's last crawl or few crawls will return an error. Therefore, when viewed on a web page with a timestamp that is a later date, the image will fail to load when earlier crawls will work just fine. This script aims to fix that by looking for the closest good crawl.

The code for scanning an image's initial standing could be rewritten to use native XMLHTTPRequest, but it turns out that Adblock Plus violently interferes with this script, as if it were to come by an image that Adblock would zap, the script would just stop.
