Peter (and all),

I have not been able to pull this link up any time that I have tried
throughout this string. Would someone be able to save it as something else
(with no period in the middle of it!!!!!!!!!!) and send it to me? I don't
think my browswer wants to read the period as part of the file name. (As a
sidenote, I don't know what drives people to use periods in the middle of
file names. Periods are supposed to separate file names from file types.)
