Thanks to all who helped me get my hands on Cyphernomicon.
I now can breeze through the html site at www.oberlin.edu. I guess at 2am
it didn't work because either I or oberlin were too sleepy. I still cannot
open an FTP port at netcom.
I got a copy on my Mac by giving a lot of memory to Netscape and getting it
from www.swiss.ai.mit.edu. I also got a copy from Jeff's zipped copy at
ftp.goblin.punk.net, but my unzipping utility hacked out a few lines.
Here is a summary of what I learned:
File Size: 1,287,731 (single character newlines)
The original. "crowded" (I couldn't open an FTP port.)
28.8 bps modem, newline=CR, but .zip will change to newline=CRLF
(On [email protected] it took me 6+ minutes to get it.)
"until someone posts it on a site with higher bandwidth"
[the upcoming new/changed/mirrored Cypherpunk site]
Other http: sites:
text. very responsive and fast (6 minutes for my 14.4 connection).
About 432Kbytes. Need g[un]zip utility.
Clearly missing are credits and contact info.
I probably won't get to the FAQ much this weekend (wife & kids expect me to
do my share and bring home the bacon), but maybe in a week or two. Do I
have to read the sci.crypt FAQ, too, to earn my FAQ badge?
