Thank you for spotting this and circulating it. I recommend to anyone
who has some local disk space or even just a floppy of 1.4Mb to locally
store html refs and key excerpts of files they find most important.

If you store files as "text" and avoid html/postscript/MSWord formats
etc. you can store a hell of a lot in just a plain 1.4Mb diskette!

I can't find the quotation on this site.

But I found the equivalent here:

Also here:

BTW, you might like this reference to a Reuters article on the
Talibans' offer to extradite bin Laden Jr to a neutral country:


The Lockerbie trial went ahead in a neutral country. Why not a trial
of bin Laden Jr? 

And a trial of Bush Jr in a neutral country, of course! Anyone know if
the US has accepted to extradite Bush Jr?
