Sorry, the original message was to alert everyone to the OED going
online. It appears that it's not quite ready for general use. There is a
link on that page that will send you to the home page. They give an
explanation there about the site. Basically, when it's ready, it will be
by subscription. A few features are available now, FREE, and to the
general public. I posted the URL because I remember someone had asked,
and a lot of other people seemed interested. I have no information other
than what is on the web site. Considering the cost of a paper OED, a
subscription is probably justified.

For now, I've bookmarked it and will continue to check it. What a great
service when it finally gets up and running!!
