I don't really know what's up with Proff's site, and I agree
with the notion that cat's don't much like being stuffed
in bags.

I also think this whole thing has gotten blown waaaaayyyyyyy out
of proportion. It's getting into the realm of the absurd.
As a result, and to forestall any more of this stuff,
I've put the file up for ftp on 2 locations currently, they
both ought to do the job, and in any event save the .au
link a bit of traffic,they are:

ftp://ftp.uu.net/tmp/WAN/muffett-wanhack.ps.gz
ftp://science.gmu.edu/tfs/muffett-wanhack.ps.gz

Of the two, the latter is probably easier to get through
on, as UUNET's ftp site is often busy. And lest anyone
bitch too hard about the distribution, I'll be perfectly
happy to stick it on 10 more locations too.

This is after all a full disclosure list. I'd only ask that
people not moan if it doesn't live up to the hype it's
aquired, Alec's been decent enough to make it avalible,
and he didn't say it was the be-all end-all on the subject
(I have only glanced at it so far, to ensure I was transfering
a non-corrupt copy, the above is not a judgment, just a
reaction to the flammage I've seen.).
