At a minimum, when SEAOC/SEAOSC updates that SEAINT website, they should
update the links on the SEAINT website to the archive
( ).  Those links are WOEFULLY out of
date.  The archive is still there and functioning, but for some reason the
links to it on the SEAINT website have not been updated since 2002.  FYI
(and for others information), you can reach the full, complete and
up-to-date archive at:  It is fully
up-to-date and is constantly, automatically updated.
