Do a DejaNews search for the subject "Specification for Ron Rivests Cipher

Last night, I decided to look at the rrc#2 algorithm in detail.
So I searched back through my personal ietf-smime mailing list archives
and found Peter's note, a portion of which is quoted above.
I then went to DejaNews to search for the aforementioned articles.
Neither article is there. The followups are there, but not
the original articles. I tried searching AltaVista also, but
didn't find the articles there either.
I leave it to list members to form their own conclusions.
