Broken Link Warning: All these links worked properly when posted. It may be that some of these links are now "broken." This is NOT my fault. The inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, specified from the very beginning that whenever a page located on a computer linked to the Web changed its location, it was the responsibility of the webmaster for the host computer to put in a "re-direct" auto-forward or link to the new location. Webmasters aren't supposed to re-organize their website and remove a page wholesale at a whim. Webmasters have a responsibility to the global World Wide Web to keep the links working on their website, by putting in these automatic re-directs. Unfortunately, many webmasters fail to do this. I do not take responsibility for any of these links being "broken" merely because they are old. Please file your omplaint to the originator of the website, if you can find them, not me!
