I use Concentric and had no trouble accessing it.

Yes, I've seen several pages which I know where done by a willing and able
member of an organization, just for the sheer thrill of doing it.  The
pages are quite nice.

As for sources, you can classify it as a rumor.  I've been down the tangled
path between Olcott and this list before and don't want to deal with it
again.  *IF* TSA did pay that much for the web page, it's sad.  I would
have liked Theosophy to have been presented to the WWW with a much livelier
and readable face.  Just my humble opinion here, as a graphic artist.
Perhaps the officials with TSA are very happy with it.  I dealt with many
clients in the business whom I disagreed with in terms of design, but they
got what they wanted and what they paid for.

I'm not so much concerned with the dollar amount as I am with the quality
of the page.

Thanks for your URL.
