FWIW I have had problems from time to time with the AdaIC.  Most
recently on or about May 8, when someone was looking for an Ada
grammar which I knew to be on the AdaIC site.

I pointed the inquiring correspondent to a site in Mannheim, because,
at the time I could not reach the AdaIC site.  Where the problem lay,
I do not know.

I can remember other occasions when I had trouble, but cannot
pinpoint the time for those in the more distant past.
