    Re: HO249 errors status?
    From: Gary LaPook

    It appears the tables have now been corrected. I received the
    following email:
    Once again, I would like to thank you for discovering these errors and
    bringing them to our attention.
    I am pleased to report that the on-line PDF files have recently been
    replaced with corrected versions. Since the generation software was no
    longer available to us, the errant pages had to be re-created
    manually, which was quite painstaking - almost as painful as actually
    finding the resources to do it!
    Anyway, the world is now a safer place because of your diligence. Well
    done, sir!
    Best regards,
