Hi, I'm a botany addict computer scientist.
Some time ago I linked myself to the taxacom ftp site
(i.e. huh.harvard.edu == 188.8.131.52).
There, in directory /pub/standards/ncu-iapt/angiosperm... ,
I have found an interesting big list of plant names
(Names in Common Use)
broken into 14 files, namely ncu1.txt -> ncu14.txt
(I think that the taxonomists know what I'm talking about)
Few days ago I've tried again to download these files,
since I've lost in a hard disk crash my previous copy,
but ncu13.txt and ncu14.txt are now missing from the directory.
Does anybody know why these two files disappeared ?
And, apart from that, how much trustworthy are the information
contained in these ncu*.txt files ?
(Today and yesterday I fail to connect to the ftp site,
[net problems ?]
so if the missing files are now returned at home
don't blame me too much.)
Thank you all,
