This publication is publicly available by chapter at the FAA Website. While I was home sick and bored, I consolidated the parts into a single pdf document and then added bookmarks for the entire text for easy searching. So my labor doesn't go to waste, I am sharing this with everyone (at least until the FAA complains.) I have not attempted to alter the content, only add the indexing. I hope you will also share this document and post it on your server so my server doesn't take all the load. It would also probably make more sense if it were hosted on a website that was more aviation related. Warning: complete file is 110 MB and may slow your computer.


Musicians have a lot to say about the use of automated instruments. For anyone considering whether to use a Sinfonia (OrchExtra) in or as their theater orchestra, I've compiled a list of arguments to consider before doing so. 

Sinfonia: Good or Bad? 

I got really tired of search through pages in the Asterisk Handbook, so I finally just worked up a pdf with the pages hyperlinked to a table of contents. You should find this much more helpful.  As a bonus, this file shaves more than a megabyte off the size of the original file. It may require Acrobat Reader 5.0 or later though.

As usual, moved by the drive to minimize repeated labor, I wrote a bot script for auto-registering route prefixes with fwdOUT. It's in Python. It runs for several minutes, but I can't imagine how many hours it would take to have registered them all one at a time using the web submit button.
