hi paul, benno, everybody!

tried to reach you in private, but haven't heard anything back so far.
the lad site has been offline for quite a while now, and i find the
entire issue pretty frustrating... it's not exactly what i would call
"high availability". :(

i'd just write the whole site off if it weren't for the fact that i used
to be listed as webmaster and people keep writing to me complaining
about broken links.

please, someone step up and do something about it.

if you are a free (as in "free speech") software developer
and you happen to be travelling near my home, drop me a line
and come round for a free (as in "free beer") beer. :-D
