Perhaps from your news feed.  Mine does not have this article.  News
articles are organized by group, but stored by message_id (which is what
the above is - GUTNBERG is part of the message_id syntax, not a group).
If one's news feed has the article, the above works fine (until the article
falls off the nntpd FIFO).

Since Mr. Spero's posting to www, I obviously do not need the article,
however I was also trying to make a point about URI syntax.  I occasionally
argue that hostnames should be permitted, which currently they are not.
