Not that German Gutenberg, of course, but the beloved http://www.gutenberg.org , where you can find tons of free audio books (not illegal ones) and ebooks. I have no problem pinging it, but Firefox laments that it is taking too long to respond and load. Does anyone have the same issue as me at this moment? I am on Xtra dial-up - hope it is not discriminating against those on dial-up. ;)

Cheers :)

I thought you were trying to channel that old guy who invented the printing press...whew!

I get a lot of time-outs and drops for most sites that are located on the other side of the time-space-continuim...like US to NZ etc. Maybe it's just because youse guys are all upside down and the electrons are vertically polorized.

Can't you go to one of the mirror sites? There used to be a lot around. Try "gutenberg mirror" to Google. :thumbs:
