Archive.org's Wayback Machine is legit legal evidence, US appeals court judges rule

Don't get me wrong... I'm a huge fan of the Wayback Machine. I am, however, having a difficult time understanding how the way it processes and stores data is consistent with rules for evidence gathering and chain of custody. How does archive.org attest to the integrity of the data in its databases? Surely the mere testimony of an office manager does not meet the criteria for "beyond a reasonable doubt"?
