I wrote to the author about this today and received a very nice reply.
He said that the URL's he provided for the article had been heavily
edited.  He also said he had submitted a revised article to Linux
Journal after he learned that AdaHome was so neglected article but that
they still used his original submission.  I will also write to Linux
Journal to thank them for publishing the article and to provide
additional URL's.

Otherwise, it was a very positive article that will definitely promote
the use of Ada on Linux.  I read the newsstand edition but it can be
read on-line at by registered
subscribers to Linux Journal.

With regard to AdaHome, I checked the "whois" database and saw that the domain name is registered through Sep 12 of this year.
Apparently Magnus Kempe is still paying the yearly registration fee.
Rather a mystery...
