Here's the original blog via WayBack Machine.

The hole has all the characteristics of a drilled bore.
Nothing like the latest tundra cratering.

It is slow and the original blog was pretty crap.
I found the links and previews on an iPad, so I canít explain why youíd not see it.
I can only suggest you copy the links in the OP and paste into the Wayback Machine site?
