Removed links to R. Jones Model number lists. This is due to the fact that the R. Jones site is hosted on a provider that apparently also contains content that McAfee Site Advisor considers "Red content". Since I had links to the (as far as I can tell) completely safe pages by R. Jones on that provider, my website is now also listed as a "red site" by McAfee Site Advisor. The links have been removed, but for all I know it might be years before McAfee rescans my website and removes the "red site" tag. I call it "guilt by association in the second degree". E-mail me for more info.
