     I didn't know about that one, but I'll bookmark it to check in the future.
     Hmmm...checking that one reveals two bugs in the version of the script
that it runs that are triggered when one happens to get a low-data-rate exit.

	1) The first access returns a truncated page of only 20 entries with
a link to get the full page.  That works, but then selecting any filtering
options or changing from the default sort order returns not the full results,
but again a truncated page of only the first 20 results with a link to get
the full results.  (See also bug 2) here.)  However, clicking on that link
yields once again the full, unfiltered list in the default sort order.  So
as long as one's connections to the site happen to be go through a low-data-
rate exit, one cannot get a full listing of filtered results or results sorted
in any order but the default sort order.

	2) Having gotten a truncated page with the desired filtering and
sorting, the statistics box at the bottom shows a result count (Routers in
Current Query Result Set) of 20 when the correct count is 40.  It appears
to be using only the number of results displayed on the truncated page.

     Thanks for checking on them.  Will they start updating again soon?

>current, however.

     Yes, it does appear to be current now, though it was either not current
or not responding (I don't remember which) when I posted my questions.
     Also, that one doesn't display or filter upon the HSDir flag, so I assume
it runs an older version of the script(s).
