- [21 May 96] NOTE TO LYNX USERS: There is a known bug with the Lynx web browser that causes it to fail sometimes when you try to download files from ftp file archives. Graphical web browsers (Netscape, Mosaic, etc.) and Lynx's successor, Lynxfm, don't have this problem. If you experience problems downloading files whose URLs begin with "ftp://ftp.std.com/books/Dhammadana", let me know, and I'll try arrange another way for you to get the files.
- [20 May 96] CHANGE IN DHARMA CENTER LISTINGS: As of 1 June 1996 I will no longer be maintaining a comprehensive directory of Dharma centers from all Buddhist traditions, simply because I don't have the time to keep all the 500+ listings accurate and up to date. I will, however, continue to do my best to maintain the listings for Theravada Buddhist centers. The listings for meditation practice groups will, for the most part, be unaffected.
- [20 May 96] NEW PAGES ADDED: I've added a chronological history (timeline) of Theravada Buddhism.
