Cecilia would be proud. ;-) Ron has the uri/n archives and that gives a good 'history'. I'm now looking for pre-history just so I can make sure it gets preserved somewhere. That stuff was just damn interesting to read. If you can find an electronic copy of your paper I'd appreciate a copy so I can put it into the archive I'm going to build. The other thing I'm looking for is the url mailing list archive. -MM -- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Michael Mealling | 505 Huntmar Park Drive | Phone: (703)742-0400 Software Engineer | Herndon, VA 22070 | Fax: (703)742-9552 Network Solutions | <URL:http://www.netsol.com> | email@example.com
