    Some of the stuff I have gathered is available from

    http://www.sveengard.no/cn/

    Nothing new there, and not much in the programs directory. But I plan to
    fill it up in time.

    It was really intended for private use so I haven't gotten the indexing
    to work properly. You have to expand the sitemap to find files or you
    will get a 403 error.
