Grrrr...that's why I usually download and archive any docs that I think I
might even have the *slightest* bit of interest in in the future.

This does seem a little petty. There was a thread of posts to
vmsnet.pdp-11 regarding correspondence between Bruce and another person
(go read the posts if you need names...). Basically, Bruce had asked this
person to remove a link to his site from their webpage, and wasn't
particularly diplomatic about it. He had kind of a Nazi policy about
links, but then again it *was* his site. This person posted that
correspondence to the group and it started a little flame, some of which
was not particularly kind. What a shame, there was some neat stuff there.

Did anyone archive some of the documentation on Bruce's site? I know I
have a bunch of it (maybe even some of the Emulex docs...let me look). If
anyone has some of those files, email me privately and I'll make them
"unofficially" available to the participants of this list.
