NOTES: The Alta Vista computer is in California, and it is a very
popular resource. If a response seems slow, you should assume that it is
related to network congestion somewhere between UW and the Alta Vista
computer, not to contention on the Alta Vista computer itself. Also, we
cannot guarantee the frequency with which Alta Vista regenerates its
indexes. You might find references to documents at UW that no longer
exist, and you might not find references to documents at UW that have been
created only recently.
