Just want to thank Bill, and Barry and Phuoc Tran, for this.
For one, it gives url address to Pajek original article (Connections),
which hopefully will be up there soon.

> that looks pretty much like the one you are used to seeing. There are
> two major differences. First, it has a lot more issues of Connections
> available for reading and, no doubt, downloading. Second, it's not on
> SFU's computer; it's at the new INSNA web site at www.insna.org. Once
> you are on the new Connections page, everything behaves as it used to
> on the old version. Well, almost everything -- if you click on the
> link in the bottom left corner of the page (you have to scroll down
> past the Fine Print), it takes you to www.insna.org instead of to
> www.sfu.ca/~insna. You probably wouldn't know the difference unless
> you looked at the address bar on your browser, though, because
> everything looks and behaves the same way. I should say everything
> that I've been able to find and fix. I would be surprised if there
> aren't still a few things I've missed. Please let me know if you find
> one of these.
> The main weakness of the early issues is that they were scanned and
> converted to pdf files one issue at a time. This means that some of
> the pdfs are pretty big -- over 10 megabytes -- and they take a long
> time to download, even with a cable modem. I bave broken a few of
> them apart into smaller files so you get a cover/table of contents
> with links to separate files for each article. I did this for 1999
> Volume 22, number 1 and number 2 and for 1987 Volume 10, number 1.
> It's a lot of work and a real pain, but it makes it a lot easier to
> get at the contents, assuming you don't want a 136-page pdf file to
> wade through. It will also allow links from the cumulative index to
> take you to individual articles. Is it worth the effort? Anyone want
> to volunteer to take this job on? We're probably looking at 150 to 200
> hours of work to do all of the work with the pdfs, a bunch of ftping
> and a bit of html, too.
> Please try out the new site at www.insna.org (you can also use
> www.insna.com) and let me know what you think would be a reasonable
> way to go with Connections.
