Yes. No wonder... But perhaps one could find something that is just 
similar enough. There are so many papers out there! If you want the 
official stuff with (not only that!) X and y separately specified shrink 
rated with respect to humidity, specified dielectric constant and so on 
- you're lost. But if you look for something that just runs pretty 
nicely on old card readers, it could (!) be easier.
