Re: Full text to Australian/British/American hacker book ``Underground'' released.

Several people have noted that that www.underground-book.com has
been slashdotted to kingdom-come (it doesn't even ping any more!) and
have asked for mirrors.

There are a number listed in various slashdot replies, here:

        http://slashdot.org/articles/01/01/18/0141232.shtml

Failing that, you can try http://rubberhose.sourceforge.net/underground,
which is an officialish mirror of the download page.

Note that there are no mirrors of the web-site proper (just the
download pages). But google has cached most of the site. A few
of the more useful pages:

 Main page:
   http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.underground-book.com
 Critical reviews:
   http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.underground-book.com/critics.php3
 Reader reviews:
   http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.underground-book.com/readers.php3
 Ordering hard-copy on-line from Australian university bookshops (note that
 amazon.com does *not* stock books published by non-us publishers.. even
 Random House Australia!):
   http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.underground-book.com/coop.php3

 Otherwise try http://www.underground-book.com/ in a few days when the deluge
 is finally over.

 Cheers,
 Julian
