Sorry not to have answered this sooner.
Everything that's Up on ZigZag may be found
from my home page at Keio,
I am trying to get more stuff up,
but finding time to work on my Web pages
is like trying to swim through molasses.
I think Andrew informed you of the ZZ developer list
to which you may subscribe,
and the archived stuff in Australia
(takes too long to search! Oughta be a way to
download the whole mess).
So anyhow, keep an eye on my ZZ pages,
because there shd be LOTS MORE ANY MINUTE NOW
