Although WRTC-96 is long over, interest continues, as is demonstrated by web traffic. Future WRTC sponsors may be interested in some of the problems we solved, as described in these historical (hysterical?) documents. I will keep this material available on-line until interest declines. You may also contact me for any files you need.
