The URL is correct. I'll bet that you got hosed by the line break in Sasha's
message (so that by clicking or cutting and pasting, your URL didn't include
the "rozen_.htm" on the end).

I did read the article. What a piece of crap. He got quite a number of facts
wrong, and didn't appear interested in surfing beyond the couple of web pages
he looked at. What's more, he didn't even get the info right on the few pages
he did look at. (E.g., his sample survey of cryonicists consisted entirely
of Ralph Merkle's links to home pages of some (26) fellow cryonicists. He
claims 25 of them are male, citing Kennita as the only female. I can only
assume that he didn't follow the links, since he missed Ailing Freeman,
Chris Peterson, and Terry Stanley, females all).

I'm probably going to send him an email message. Hopefully, I can muster
diplomacy that he'll consider printing corrections.
