Very good. I had forgotten about that thread, even though I have posted on it quite a bit. Maybe my post above is redundant.

However, I doubt that the list of names of university/academic presses mentioned on the thread come anywhere close to being exhaustive. I think that I've got a bookmark set for a webpage somewhere that at least attempts to list all of them. I'll try to get around to looking for it, and post it on this and/or the thread that you referenced.

But for people to actually check each one of the listed sites, one-by-one, to see if there's anything on one of the listed sites that they'd like to have, my, how daunting that would be! I've got a backlog of free ebooks that I know about, on various websites, that I want to download, and I've been praying that the books or the websites don't disappear before I can get to them! Then, there's an issue that I've run into of where a site did have the tomes in PDF (which I personally like), for example, but they've changed them over to html5, which I know very little about (but it looks like the wave of the future, so I'm going to have to learn how to handle it eventually anyway).
