Many of these are at Marc Schindler's excellent web site contained at http://www.members.shaw.ca/mschindler/A/science.htm   I sadly announce that Marc passed away on October 20, 2003.  His passing is very sad - he will be missed.  He was a giant in all things intellectual, and was a personal friend.  I do not know if his pages will be maintained.
