I have deleted nothing.
I have however changed the host for my homepage, so the pointers
in old postings in the Google archive won't work.
My current homepage is at the bottom of the page.

However, many of the papers are of an "ad hoc" character
an is not found on that homepage, but you will find them
here:
http://www.gethome.no/paulba/pdf/index.htm

I am sure you will find the rest of my blunders there.
Was it any particular you had in mind?

I look forward to yet another request for a reminder
