It is worth getting the MultiMedia article, but I don't think you need a
color version. All of the technical content is contained in the MultiMedia
article. I will work on getting some of the info (maybe the comic strip)
up on the web so that people can look at it. Our web server is
"" but there is nothing specific about that particular
project yet.
