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
