I notice that this page now has links to some charity sites. Is the page legitimate, or a scam of some sort?

Max's site? no scam from him, definitely. it is a privately owned page, after all. he may be trying to recoup a bit of the cost.

he's got a nice tribute link for Edmund Hillary.

Anybody know what the Latin on that page says?

Yes, that seems to be what it says.

right up on top of Max's list is Bartleby.com, which is an excellent resource.

a while back I got this note from a reader:
I wanted to let you know about ReadPrint.com -- a massive non-profit library similar to Bartleby -- except its far better organized and user friendly. We've been using it extensively in school nowadays -- it's great for doing research since you can search within the books.

from a glance, it looks pretty good.

ReadPrint seems to be on that Max guy's page as well.
