I added the URL of this node and the date ("November 2002"); maybe you should too?
The URL that is already there (http://juerd.nl/) will host a whole new website soon (ETA: one or two weeks), including the cheat sheet. What's the purpose of a date if it already has a version number?

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
