    This work was off line for a while because of security reasons. Because the
    data were lost, I had to go 'back in time'. I am very sorry to have lost
    some very interesting changes in the text.

    Bertand Gauguet wrote a text :


    BECAUSE jumping out of my bed, I switch on my computer to read new messages,
    BECAUSE I often wait for replys that never come,
    BECAUSE I cannot help to switch it on again after having switched it off,
    BECAUSE I always hope to find some unexpected messages in it,
    BECAUSE my lonelyness can also be connected at 56 Ko,
    BECAUSE Returned mail - User unknow

    BECAUSE I want the web to tell me stories,
    BECAUSE many links always send me back to the same distress,

    BECAUSE my bookmarks reveal other outlines of my identity,
    BECAUSE on the net, I is an other person (inaccessible),
    BECAUSE on the net, I is everyone (accessible-no-no),
    BECAUSE I is also a random snapshot of the collective identity,
