Sorry.  I stand corrected.

Do you need secure hosting? 

I can host this stuff on a very secure FreeBSD system right here for
you for nothing if you like.  Just ask.

Well, at the top, there is a bar and it has a "files" link, and that is
busted.  And also the "Filelist (download area)" link is busted.

Again, I apologize and stand corrected.  It isn't a ``lot'' of links
that are busted... just all of the ones that would have been useful
to me personally.

If it is bigger than 1 MB as an e-mail message, then let me know and
I'll tell you where you can FTP it to instead.
