VICTOR: NTLK Ready and Willing to work on NewtonMAD

Apologies to the list...


Please contact me at or at 405.949.4548 regarding the
cleanup of NewtonMAD archive and mirrors thereof. I've written to both of
your other email accounts with no response (maybe a filter on HotMail?).

Also, several people have volunteered to help with the NewtonMAD cleanup.
We now have a secure FTP site with the complete archive, thanks to Dave
Solko, to accomplish this for any that are interested in helping. Contact
me privately here at for access instructions and details.

The resulting archive will be both zipped and stuffed for distribution back
to the various mirrors when complete. We are also contacting the authors
for permission to include their software in the archive to avoid
misunderstandings in the future.

Thanks and Regards,

Big thanks to all offering me help and hosting once it's cleaned up.

Problem is, I haven't secured a copy of the original archive yet: Kenneth
lost his in a hard drive crash a while ago, and Sunder rm -rf *'d his
copy. I need to find a copy somewhere...
