Updated the Links list with http://vto2.csad.ox.ac.uk/. This site just went live yesterday, and what a find! It incorporates searchable texts (with background & discussion) from the original CSAD Web site as well as nearly 300 of the more recently-discovered texts. This is the first time these later texts have been made freely available for research. I've only taken a quick glance, but I'm really impressed with how easy it is to look through & sort the texts, and by the amount of background info. Surely an amazing resource for anybody studying life on the frontier!

It appears to only work with Firefox.

Hrm, odd that. I see what you're saying -- when I open it in Internet Explorer I see the message. I've clicked some of the links using Internet Explorer and it does still seem to work. Maybe they're still polishing everything off? At any rate, for me it does seem to work using IE.

For what it's worth, I use Google Chrome as my browser, and it works flawlessly on that as well.
