Car plates for germany, switzerland and italy [old style] (Plucker)
-- 20/04/2005
List of 15000+ surnames for girls (DOC and iSilo) and boys (DOC and iSilo) for those who have to choose the name of a baby.
The basic list has been found I do not remember where on the net. I have merged this with several other lists of surnames used in France, Germany and Brittany (a good source can be found at The baby zone but they do not consider diacritics). -- 17/04/2000;
List of hôtels in Grenoble (HTML, JFile)
The data come directly from Grenoble tourism information 1998 leaflet (input by myself). This is the last update; for an interactive application look here -- 20/07/2000.;
Shuttle for Grenoble to/from Lyon-Satolas airport (TSV for memo)
valid until 27/04/2000 -- 20/12/99;
TGV trains from/to Grenoble to/from Paris (TSV for memo)
valid until 02/12/2000 -- 20/07/2000;
Flight and shuttle for Grenoble to/from Paris (TSV for memo)
valid until 25/03/2000 -- 22/11/99;
Map of Paris subway (ImageViewer) and RER (ImageViewer, 33k)
The images come in B&W (1bit) compressed ImageViewer format. They have been redrawn by myself from the RATP sources. They are more up-to-date than the actual GIFs distributed by RATP (01/98). However, I would strongly suggest using instead the Métro application because it computes accurately the path, it is free, it is up to date, it is generic (works for more network than you will use in your whole life), and comes with the complete RER+métro network. No m'am it does not print valid tickets. -- 19/11/99;
Map of French railways (ImageViewer)
in B&W (1bit) compressed ImageViewer format (25k). It is redrawn by myself from the SNCF sources. -- 19/10/98;
List of stout (and porter) beers (CSV for JFile, JFile)
The data come from various books, including Michael Jackson's and my own experience (in the tested field). The new release includes record gathered from the web (here are the best sites I've found for american porters and british stouts). I gladly accept any sample to improve my knowledge ;-) -- 20/11/98.;
French holliday schedules for 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 (TSV for memos).
Source: the ministery of education site. -- 11/02/2002;


Jean-Baptiste Clément's Le temps des cerises (in french, text, CSV for memo)
-- 3/9/98.
Aristotle complete logical works (in english, Doc)
Coming soon. The organon (I. Categories, II. On interpretation, III. Prior analytics, IV. Posterior analytics, V. Topics, VI. Sophistic refutations) originating from Internet Classics;
Charles Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal (in french, Doc iSilo Plucker)
From the Athena RTF e-text version of the 1861 edition. -- 20/04/2005;
William Strunk's The elements of style (1918 edition, Doc)
From the Bartleby library HTML version of the 1918 edition. This one is better in book (so cheap, elaborate formatting and revised editions) -- 20/04/2005.;
