You don't need to bother: I just downloaded them to  It was
pretty easy: I downloaded the file list with "lynx -dump", made a few
regexp search/replace with vi, and used a Bourne shell while loop to
download all files using the "lynx -source" command.  Then I extracted all
files with a shell for loop.  Unix really is user friendly, it's just a
bit selective about its friends.

But now I'd like to have some generic descriptions of the archives.  It
seems that the files * are directory listings of some sort, and the
* files contain single Lynx archives containing the files.  But
what are the two-letter codes (b1 through b3, c1 through ck, u1 through
u3)?  The file appears to be the New York Times article about some
C= users.  I wouldn't put it available without asking permission.
