I haven't dabbled in Hebrew studies for over 15 years, but the answers are easy enough. I'll pm Khephra

Note that there are significant omissions from this translation -- some of the most important parts. I think it would still be quite worth tracking down a copy of the book from the original post (though there's no way of telling in advance how complete that one will be either). I tried to get it here in the U.S. through Interlibrary Loan but this was one book they were unable to track down... It's relatively new and fairly obscure.

I tried 3 times, but couldn't get it to work. Sad Did anyone else have better luck?

It worked for me yesterday but does not work now, and the questions don't seem to have changed. I thought this might happen though -- they probably saw a spike of hits, saw where the page was linked from and shut it down. It wasn't a particularly effective "security" technique to begin with -- plus the translation is now obviously in the general English-speaking domain, thanks to Providence University Press -- but whatever.
