    For what it's worth, the Jargon file is located on a server that cannot be accessed from behind the firewall at my day job. The hosting site is classified as a "Hacking" site and the company believes its associates should not be viewing information in that category.

    Mind you, I'm not saying that it's right, fair, or even reasonable. But, the decision can be defended from their point of view.

    The point being that, if we want to make the information available to PM'ers, perhaps it might be worth mirroring in the Library.

      i'm appalled that the censorware package your employer uses is blocking EVIL HACKERS THE DUTCH! some student's home page must have had CPHACK on it, or something.
