Thank you, I do buy books at Amazon.com.
However, someone (Oatmeal) on the mIRC #ebooks channel announces daily when Bookstuff is now open at Bookstuff: ftp @ ftp://book:firstname.lastname@example.org/ - so I finally decided to try acting on that bit of a hint.
Perhaps someone else will have the information here that I seek. I can't ask for clarification in the mIRC #ebooks channel, unfortunately. Would if I could, can't so I don't. Bayfia
A good book is a great friend.
