You wouldn't believe it, but I can't find a digital version of the 1.5 (or 1.8 reprint) of this book. In those days these things were put on CDROMs I guess, so I would need to dig in very old boxes... but with the crazy NaN years after it's well possible this got lost.

Just google around? I found this already as one of first hits.

Releasing at as CC-by would be all fine with me.
