Just to explain why this is a problem, the various pages of 
the homebuilt CPU web ring all are supposed to link to David 
Brooks' page and a small javascript code that allows viewers 
of the various pages to jump to any of the other pages.  As 
new pages are added to the ring (or dead ones removed) the 
javascript is updated to reflect that.  So, it really is 
important that these pages link to a single copy of the 
javascript that is up to date.

So, it is not a matter of me seeing David Brooks page one 
time, it is a matter of anybody who looks at my page or any 
of the other pages being able to get to all the other pages 
of the ring.

And, with the great help of the classiccmp group, we have 
scoped out that this is actually a pretty large problem, 
about 54% of US and Canadian users cannot get to anything on
