What is Mens et Manus?

Library story - This link (now at archive.org) used to be good, until the MIT library apparently took Philip Greenspun's sarcastic advice seriously:
"Final Tip
Reorganize your file system after you're listed in all the Web directories, after folks at other sites have linked to articles on your server, and after search engines have discovered your sites. That way users will be sure to get "404 Not Found" messages after finding your site in Yahoo or WebCrawler."
The Library story can currently be found here (for now, as of 09/08/2001) and here (from archive.org, for another one broken, as of 8/10/2002 or earlier)
Museum story
Short story
Long story - which is notably the only one of these links not broken since first linked in May '01 (as of August '04), except for Greenspun's, which was revised from the original without breaking.

Quote of the moment
The Past is dead, and has no resurrection; but the Future is endowed with such a life, that it lives to us even in anticipation. The Past is, in many things, the foe of mankind; the Future is, in all things, our friend. In the Past is no hope; The Future is both hope and fruition. The Past is the text-book of tyrants; the Future is the Bible of the Free. Those who are solely governed by the Past stand like Lot’s wife, crystallized in the act of looking backward, and forever incapable of looking before.
~ Herman Melville (1819–1891), U.S. author. White-Jacket (1850), ch. 36, The Writings of Herman Melville, vol. 5, eds. Harrison Hayford, Hershel Parker, and G. Thomas Tanselle (1969). ~
