    Apparently, the UPenn server no longer has Meng Weng Wong's Perl
    concordancer "fsconcordance.pl". I've looked *everywhere*.

    If someone could send me a copy, or point me to a working URL, I'd be

    Recently I was asked to look at something that referred to the designation
    "Internet researcher". I immediately felt puzzled and have subsequently
    been attempting to figure out why I find this designation odd. Of course
    feelings are notoriously unreliable and difficult to share, but those that
    persist do nag as to source, and being bothered by words can point to
    significant connotations. One does run into dodgy contexts, such as sent to
    me recently by quiteironic@netwow.com, an advert for Internet Investigator,
    which promises to allow you the user access to information about
    "neighbors, enemies, friends, debtors, employees, your boss, yourself,
    relatives, former school or military buddies, even a new love interest!"
    Net-wow indeed (but with no detectable irony). But I don't think that such
    contexts are responsible for my puzzlement. Any ideas?
