NOTE: The E-Sylum archive search feature on the NBS web site was broken for a while, but seems to be partly working again. It uses the Google Custom Search Engine feature, and Google apparently had a hiccup. Perhaps they're running out of places to store their billions of dollars in market valuation. If you try a search and it doesn't work for you, go to the main Google site and include "site:coinbooks.org" in your query. This will limit your search results to just the NBS web site.
