This is a repost - Ignore if you've seen it already - it didn't get back to
me or to some West Coast people.

Also a further correction:  The new Toolbook Gopher that Kevein Gamiel
mentions being released yesterday still hasn't shown up at ftp.cnidr.org,
but is at the sunsite and boombox archives.

My apologies for continuing a subject slightly off-topic, but since my
original post on this subject, I've gotten several more queries directly,
so it may be of interest to others as well.
