This came from the editor of ARGOS, so the mystery of the disappeared
search engine is solved.

Hi Ulrich,

Thanks for sending the message about Argos to me. Argos is still on-line.
However, frequent power outages here at the University of Evansville have
caused it to disappear for several periods of a few hours over the last
few weeks. (Sections of the University are beind rewired, and the
electricians would rather do this with the power off. Can't say that I
blame them.) Of course, Argos is on a back-up power supply, but this
doesn't help much when the internet connection goes down.

Incidentally, the second edition of the index will be coming on-line soon.
It will more than double the size of the existing database. You may expect
to see it in two to three weeks.

If you continue to see problems, please let me know.
