Indeed. That's the trouble/curse of the Internet - it's not possible
to go around and fix/change all the references to names that change
as companies get bought/sold
That was a long long (quad_t? ;)) time ago. GTE sold their
Government Systems Corporation ('gsc') to General Dynamics several
years ago. After a while GTE of course insisted we stop using
'gtegsc' - then a little later GTE became Verizon.
For now. The idjits in charge are playing
at reorganizing and I think sometime next year the domain name will
change yet again - but the hope is that the current name will
be retained for a while as a compatibility measure.

It's been a slow couple years - only a couple updates done last

(done Jan 2002).
Yes, the archive of updates is maintained. I think there are a
couple mirrors but I have no accurate count of who is mirroring
