Thanks. They will stay on-line but we need the space to introduce  
"real-looking" projects into HtDP so that students think they learned  
something :-)

Most people never truly understand HtDP. Because when they went to  
school -- can you hear the chest-beating -- they knew how to write  
real applications at the end of the first course, programs that  
consumed real inputs and that produced visible outputs. Games! Yes,  
and their grandmother played them. More chest beating in the background.

So sorry but we will offer them for people like you and Matthias  
(version 1.0) teaching at Rice. -- Matthias
