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 (older version now at archive) 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 (now at archive) 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 one of the last couple links 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
When the inhabitants of some sequestered island first descry the “big canoe” of the European rolling through the blue waters towards their shores, they rush down to the beach in crowds, and with open arms stand ready to embrace the strangers. Fatal embrace! They fold to their bosoms the vipers whose sting is destined to poison all their joys; and the instinctive feeling of love within their breasts is soon converted into the bitterest hate.
~ Herman Melville (1819–1891), U.S. author. Typee (1846), ch. 4, The Writings of Herman Melville, vol. 1, eds. Harrison Hayford, Hershel Parker, and G. Thomas Tanselle (1968). ~
