Hmmm... I don't think the GML archive's URL is "privileged information", and
no one charges a fee for access. Mark Simmon's Gundam Project site and
Burke's Mecha Domain also should have enough information to keep people busy
reading, including the Gundam Timeline.

Hmmm... I guess you don't have any Japanese bookstore in your city? That
can't be... it's Singapore, where people dump Gundam VCDs on eBay on a daily

Sorry man, I do get tired of hearing newbies asking the same thing over
and over, especially on topics that have been archived. Speaking of which,
I think either Jason or Aaron is making a FAQ for the GML for the newbies'
benefit, maybe this should be included as well - a list of free online
resources to consult before hitting the ML with another recurring post.
That moron who tried to get off the GML with a rude post was the last straw,
and you had the misfortune of coming up right after him...
