Subject line says it all. Major server problems have been repaired and JimZ Classic Plans
site is again online.

Enjoy. And many thanks to Tony R. for tireless efforts in getting system back online.

Is it just me or does that server seem to be a slightly tempermental? Also
is it just me or does the server seem more likely to abandon multiple DLs on
a Mac (266Mhz G3 with 56K modem, system 8.1, Internet Explorer 4.01) then on
a wintel (200Mhz Gateway with 56K modem, Windows 95, Internet Explorer 4.0)?
I don't have access to the wintel anymore, plus I like the Mac and the Mac
version of Explorer (especially the download manger) better. I may try
Anarchie and maybe Monica on bulk DLs in the near future.

BTW- Be on the lookout for Centuri Space 1999 Eagle Transporter stuff that
I'm sending to JimZ. (So at what time during this year is Moonbase Alpha
going to get nuked out of orbit?)

-DGH-

PS: Please email me if anybody knows anything about consumer rights and time
limitations concerning two years of snafus and over billing and bad 'net
service by phone companies.

Well, careful analysis of the old episodes reveals that there were no
Christmas decorations up during the "incident" on the far side of the
moon.  The station also appeared to be fully provisioned and manned.
This kind of readiness is not something likely to happen during the
holidays, when so many personnel are likely to be on vacation.  This
means that this will not be a fourth-quarter event.

The absence of school-age children would indicate that the disaster
happened during the school year.  Had it been summer vacation there
would have been rug-rats all over the station.  This means that the
disaster probably didn't occur during the third quarter either.

Based on this analysis, and the fact that it's already 1999 and Eagles
have not even entered flight testing yet, I think it would be safe to
expect the moon disaster to occur sometime during the second quarter
this year, provided there are no delays or cost overruns in the Eagle
program.
