I'm even losing access to the newsgroups rec.arts.disney and rec.arts.comics.*
But I'm not so sorry about that... 8-)

The ftp site has always been available via e-mail. So I think I'll have to
use that, or maybe I visit my old employer now and then...

Do you mean he has to pay for ftp, while receiving mail is free?
The total database will be about 9 megabytes of ascii text (which means
9 million characters). Shall I send it to you in one mail? 8-)

(BTW Per: I said to you it would be about 2 Mb, but I forgot to count the
files that are generated by my programs. The "source" files only are about
2 Mb...)

I think *you* are thinking of Paul VERHOEVEN.
Dutch for Danes (and other foreigners), lesson 1:
  pronunciation: OE = oo in English "book", u in German "Buch"
                 U  = between u in English "luck" and oe in German "Loecher"
                 EU = o" in Kna"ckebro"d

In 1992, he drew a story about Columbus. This was a Euro-centric story.
Scrooge went back in time and met Columbus the moment he "discovered" America.
Scrooge goofed up: Columbus never told anyone about his discovery.
When Scrooge gets back in 1992, all is normal (Duckburg still exists, so
it's obviously not in America), except that there are no potatoes, tobacco,
hammocks or other stuff that came from America.

The story had some educational goal (in the Columbus-year 1992), but I think
this one will never be printed in the USA.. 8-)
