Q: Note to webmaster: Broken Link, in the Further Reading block at the bottom of your Horror Gallery page, I received an Alert box in my Netscape 7.02 browser, bearing text saying, "www.bountyquest.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again." And it has repeated six 6 times, now, at 1625 to 1637 GMT 2003/11/30.

A: Indeed Bountyquest seems to have closed down. In fact many initiatives aimed at fighting "bad software patents" with prior art seem to have been unsuccessful, including

- Software Patents Institute (accused by Greg Aharonian of having been a "fraudulent" enterprise from the start)

- Priorart.org
