That may well be the case, but it has an easy solution: Long can just send updated versions of his routines to me,
and then his site and SSC will be in sync. I don't know why it would be so onerous for Long and Freese to keep
their SSC routines up to date; other users, such as Roger Newson, who maintain personal sites do so readily enough.
