June 14: When I checked the Michael Stone website, it was off-line. I was informed later that the domain had expired on May 16, so I presume it has been off-line since then.
June 21: I spent hours yesterday afternoon uploading the Michael Stone website to a new free host - freehostyou.com.
I advertised it on Usenet this afternoon in an article called Michael Stone - eleven years gaol on no evidence whatsoever, so I suppose that counts as publication.
There is one new piece on it, a scanned article by Stone called PROHIBIT CELL CONFESSIONS - NOW with a short introduction by Yours Truly dated June 19, 2008.
This host has a maximum file size of 1MB, for free sites at any rate; the thirteen page document “R v MICHAEL STONE ADMITTED FACTS” from the Nottingham Crown Court retrial is slightly over 1MB and would not upload. There appears to be another file that has not uploaded, but there are too many to count, although I’ve tried. Apart from that the site is all there. Oh, I removed the guestbook as well.

I appear to have missed this!
August 21: There was a problem with SearchlightArchive; I wasn’t able to access the 1994 Critical Bibliography file; possibly other files were also off-line.
After contacting the host I was eventually told it was all right, but in the small hours of August 22 I couldn’t access the site at all.
August 22: SearchlightArchive was back on-line but the 1994 bibliography file still wouldn’t display; I hadn’t a clue why not, especially as it displayed all right on my hard disk.
Later, I received a reply from the host to the effect that the page would not display because it contained a proscribed word - porn! Oh boy!
August 22: The Song Image for Stand Tall was published.
The SongFact itself appears to have been published on August 18 - see above - although I’m not absolutely sure. At any rate, both were published by today.

Re the above PDFs; all the above with the exception of the court judgment are in compressed format. This latter was sent to me by Mr Hancock.

September 1: An Address Given By Dr Fuk Yu Gud, Chairman Of The Chinese Commission For Monitoring Human Rights In The United Kingdom, To The Golders Green Anglo-Islamic Business Forum In The Wake Of The Beijing Olympics was published on this site.
A nice piece of satire, if I say so myself. Well, somebody should!
September 1: I managed to get the 1994 bibliography page on SearchlightArchive to display.
The offending word was actually “pornographic”; I put a space in the word on the actual site without editing the file on my hard disk. [When I moved SearchlightArchive to this domain, the problem appeared to have been resolved].

September 13: The second edition of Poison On The Rates was published on this site in PDF together with a scan of the leaflet/letter The Real Big Issue.
I’d clean forgotten that I’d already published the actual text of this latter yonks ago. I prefixed it with a fairly lengthy introduction which is also called Poison On The Rates.
Later, I added IF THEY’RE BLACK SEND THEM BACK: How Nelson Mandela Went From Working Class Hero To Well-Oiled Nazi Machine in compressed PDF.

September 27: Having found a very good compression program I reduced ADOLF HITLER: Anti-Racist! from over 14Mb to around 1Mb. So I compressed that and replaced the original files on this site with the one, removing some of the blurb on the introductory page.
There are only two problems with this program; it appears to mark at least one page with some sort of company icon. And it also appears to lock the file so it can’t be edited further. The above pamphlet appears to have been published, in the first instance, without a scan of the back cover, a fault I rectified today.
September 28: I compressed Windows 3.1 And The End Of War into one file and uploaded it again, amending the text introduction slightly and corrected any errors - if any! - related either to the introduction or the PDF(s).

It was published as a new SongFact rather than an alteration.

it was removed! But, everything was corrected by October 27, and they all lived happily ever after).
Where Were You Tomorrow, by Wishbone Ash.
