Pythagorean Triangles to a hypotenuse of 3000

You refer to a list that was developed in 1912 showing all Pythagorean triangles up to a hypotenuse of 3000. Do you have any idea if this list is available on the web at any location? I have set myself the impossible task of trying to resolve Fermat's last theorem using high school algebra and my starting point is a list of all Pythagorean triangles. I know this will ptrobably be impossible but I do a lot of travelling and it kills lots of time in airports and planes. (my last exercise was to try to trisect an angle geometrically  something that was proven impossible last century but once again it kills time). I look forward to your reply
