- 1 May 2003

ARGE has been in a state of suspended animation, while its editor was (first) enjoying himself in southern Italy, and (then) hard at work meeting deadlines for his real job.

For the historically minded: you can work your way backwards through the archives of the "newlinks" page for the years 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996, and 1995. These files are ~100 KB in size. No archive was kept between ARGE's start in March 1995 and 7 August of that year.
