E:/I/Escape/	(from

But the downloaded copy of <>
doesn't have a link to this page, even though new.txt pretends it does.  (I
removed all /" *\+ *"/ from the page so as to check obfuscated links as

The way I discovered was because some years ago another download
with external=1 ended up copying that whole site (which is huge) in my
